This week we are quite excited and very proud to be able to offer you some of our carefully selected private imports from Bordeaux.

It is also worth mentioning that our very own Phil Stanton has worked many vintages at Château de Chantegrive, so, if you have any questions, either about the estate or Bordeaux in general, please don't hesitate to ask. Wine can be purchased via the links below.
Château Mamin Graves Blanc 2014 - $24.50
Subtle fruit on the nose, with peaches and citrus mingling with toasted notes. The palate is refined, with complex aromatics of fresh fruits, uplifted by a gentle acidity. Beautiful length, the oak ageing is done masterfully and brings slightly toasty notes and a full, rounded mouthfeel.
Château Chantegrive Cuvée Caroline Graves Blanc 2016 - $63
The nose shows notes of apple, white flowers, vanilla, ripe, bright stone fruit and hints of fresh butter. The palate's soft, creamy texture is balanced by a zippy freshness. Intensely aromatic, with a tropical fruit finish and whisper of fresh mint. Beautiful oak integration. More please!
Mickael Gelder Bordeaux Rouge 2016 - $21
A blend of delicious, ripe, Cabernet Sauvignon from the Graves area, and juicy Merlot from Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux.
On the nose, the wine opens up on notes of ripe black and red cherries, hints of liquorice and vanilla, with a gentle spicy undercurrent. The palate follows through with an harmoniously balanced softness - hints of oak and spices with cocoa-like tannins. Beautiful on it's own, but will shine on roasted poultry, cheeses and chocolate desserts.

Château de Chantegrive Graves Rouge 2015 - $50
"The 2015 Chantegrive is bold, ripe and forward. Succulent red cherry, tobacco, licorice, dried herbs and menthol take on shades of brooding, intense power in this decidedly virile wine. The tannins are a bit imposing today, but another 6-12 months in bottle should do the trick. The blend is 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted two times."
- Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
"Very fine tannins and pretty fruit for this wine with medium to full body and a fresh finish. 50% merlot and 50% cabernet sauvignon." - (91-92) Points, JamesSuckling.com
Château Gaudin Pauillac 2012 - $55
“Produced on a small family-run estate that is surrounded by Bordeaux first growths, this wine is structured and firm. It has dark tannins and black currant fruit, together giving a ripe, smoky wine. The 40-year-old vines add to the concentration of this wine. “ - 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Château Pressac St-Émilion Grand Cru 2014 - $77
“A gorgeous wine, the 2014 de Pressac is dark, bold and voluptuous. Dark cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, lavender, sage and licorice all run through it. Deeply expressive, pliant and succulent, the 2014 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The dark, flamboyant style works beautifully here.The blend is 69% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon plus dollops of Malbec and Carmenère.“ - 92 Points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
