The Wines of Bordeaux 2 Bottle Gift Set features:
Château Saint-André Corbin Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion ($31.99)
Château Ducasse Bordeaux Blanc ($18.99)
Bordeaux is the largest fine wine region on earth, and certainly one of the best known. To many wine drinkers, however, it's a bit of a mystery. Most (virtually all) of the red wines are blends of 2 or more key grapes, & the whites are typically blends as well. Highlighted in this handy gift set are 2 classic wines in their respective style. Chateau Saint-Andre Corbin from St-Georges-St-Emilion is comprised of 70% Merlot/30% Cab Franc, aged for 15 months in French oak. It showcases red plum, dark chocolate, white pepper and dark berry fruit on the nose and palate, with substantial body and fine tannins.
The blanc from Ducasse is 60% Semillon/35% Sauvignon Blanc/5% Muscadelle. The wine has purity of fruit, and a nice textured roundness, while retaining bright acidity and mineral notes.
