DESCRIPTION:

Château Cap De Biolet Bordeaux blend projects a sense of class and breed, something timelessly elegant yet offering enough accessibility of fruit to please the modern palate. As tastes change and styles cycle through a perpetual loop, the classics never seem to go out of style - and what is more classic than a bold, rich Bordeaux red?

 

At the 25th hour, we received a call from a good friend in our home base of Bordeaux, with incredible news. A bumper crop in 2019 had left him with an excess of his Grand Vin, the top wine from the estate, well known and coveted in area wine shops. Not much more is needed to say – 100% estate grown, estate produced Bordeaux from the heart of the region. We are beyond proud to include it in the 2020 calendar!

BORDEAUX -
WINE OF KINGS... AND NEIGHBORS:

The city and people of Bordeaux have been producing wine for centuries. Through hard work, dedication to their craft, and an early embrace of international markets, Bordeaux winemakers have earned their reputation as among the finest in the world.

 

Grapes for this classically styled Bordeaux blend are grown in close proximity to the Garonne River, which provides a respite for the vines from the Southern French heat of summertime. We offer this wine as proud local residents, as a symbol of what our Bordelais friends and neighbors do best!
