Discover Fine Bordeaux Wine
Bordeaux is one of the most important wine regions in the world. Dominated by red blends mostly consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, these wines tend to be medium bodied with earthy notes and sturdy tannins. The climate in Bordeaux is most impacted by the surrounding rivers and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean creating a consistently moderate climate.
The Millesima team has picked two bottles from the Left Bank and one from the Right Bank for the Bordeaux Discovery Wine Gift Set. The Left Bank is home to well-known appellations such as Pessac-Leognan and Margaux. The terroir of Pessac-Leognan offers wines with a robust and complex personality and a mineral aspect. The wines of Margaux are known for their generous balance and remarkable finish. Saint-Emilion is a key appellation in the Right-Bank producing some of the most prestigious and long-lived wines.
The Bordeaux Discovery Wine Gift Set contains three unique bottles: Domaine de la Solitude is a functioning monastery and vineyard that creates beautiful Bordeaux blends; chateau Siran is a rising star producer creating lovely age worthy wines; and D de Dassault produces wonderful wines from Saint-Emilion.
Domaine de la Solitude Red 2014
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot – Pessac-Leognan
Bright and fresh, bursting with red and black fruit, the Domaine de la Solitude is balanced out with a weighty structure and round tannins. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a dash of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine has superb flavors and complexities for a delightful Bordeaux.
Château Siran 2015
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot – Margaux
This Margaux is full of fleshy black fruits accompanied by balsamic hints. The fruit is ample, vibrant and generous. This attack reveals spicy tannins with a delicate grain. The wine has volume and a juicy palate. No doubt that this Siran is one of the greatest vintages, judged by its solid structure, without hiding the fruit.
D de Dassault 2015
Merlot, Cabernet Franc – Saint-Emilion
Strong cherry red color, slightly amber at the rim. Fruity and minty on the nose, with slight chocolatey notes. Soft, fine and elegant on the palate, with moderate concentration. Light finish. A nice, pleasurable wine with short aging potential.
