In this gift set we tried to give you two Bordeaux reds that give you a truly great Bordeaux experience without having to break the bank.
In order to receive the Bordeaux Superieur label the wine growers have to adhere to much stricter rules and regulations.
Wines from Bordeaux at a lower price point can be very disappointing experience but I think that with these two we have really hit a high note.
1 x Chateau Roc De Levraut, Bordeaux Superieur
This wine is mostly Merlot with some Cabernet Sauvignon added for good luck.
The wine is full bodied and very balanced with super concentration of fruit and savory.
On the nose you will get Cassis straight away followed by aromas of buttered toast, blackcurrants, toffee and also some leather at the end.
It is a super food wine because of the super balanced tannins and acidity.
Food Pairings: You should have this with a steak (sorry vegetarians) or tuna steak would be awesome.
Chateau La Verriere Bordeaux Superieur
In this wine you are getting a Chateau bottled wine which means that means that it is only handled by the team at the Chateau and is bottled on site.
Like the other wine in this box it has ripe, plump and juicy fruits with some chocolate and savory notes at the end.
The concentration is fantastic and the balance is superb.
Food Pairings: Would be similar to the previous wine .You could put a beef or root vegetable casserole in there also.
