New Bordeaux Arrivals
We’ve just received three new fantastic wines from Bordeaux! These wines are fantastic right now, and will age gracefully for years to come. Stop in today and check out these and many more excellent Bordeaux wines!
Chateau Larrivaux Haut-Medoc 2010
Château Larrivaux is run by Bérangère Tesseron, the wife of Basile Tesseron of 4th Growth Château Lafon Rochet in nearby St. Estephe. Larrivaux has been in existence since the late 16th century, and has been operated by the women of the family throughout the generations.
“Another sleeper of the vintage, this elegant 2010 offers up notes of cedar, loamy soil, black currants and black cherries. Medium-bodied and complex already with supple tannins as well as a nicely layered mouthfeel and finish, it should be consumed over the next decade.”
– Robert Parker
Chateau Tayac Margaux 2012
A small vineyard of just over 10 acres in the north of the Margaux appellation, Bellevue de Tayac obviously received serious attention from then-owner Jean-Luc Thunevin of Château Valandraud in Saint-Émilion. You can taste that in the vanilla flavors from the wood aging and the smooth texture. It’s a micro-cuvée that shows great richness and potential.
