Red Bordeaux

Bordeaux is a wine making region in France that is especially famous for its red wines. Many of the reds produced in Bordeaux are actually blends of different grape varieties for a rich, noble flavor that makes red Bordeaux wines so famous. Other notable characteristics of Bordeaux reds include a dark red color, rich aromas and a well-balanced taste. Also, Bordeaux reds almost always improve with age, turning different shades of red and changing from fruity and floral aromas to subtler woodsy scents.

As with all French wines, the concept of terrior is an important factor in Bordeaux wine making. Terrior refers to the unique characteristics that the local geography and origination have imparted on the wine. The most famous chateau wineries in Bordeaux claim that their red wines reflect the land they were grown on, which is what gives the red wine its uniqueness and makes it so special. In Bordeaux, Merlot is the most widely planted variety of grape, Cabernet Sauvignon is the second most popular grape variety, and Cabernet Franc is the third most planted variety. Most red Bordeaux blends are created with a mixture of these three grape varieties.

Gil Turner’s carries a wide range of red Bordeaux wines, including wine from St. Emilion and Pomerol. Many of our wines are Grand Cru, which is a French wine classification given to vineyards known for a stellar reputation in producing wine. We suggest trying the Chateau Magdelaine 2002 Saint Emilion Grand Cru or the Chateau Troplong Mondot 2004 St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe, and pairing them with a great prime rib.
