I really enjoy Bordeaux wine. Is there anyone out there who does not like St Emilion Grand Cru?
Too often names such as Chateau Margaux, Chateau Petrus, Chateau Lafite and Chateau Latour come to mind. The region of Bordeaux has produced fine wine since Roman times. Of course, they are Reds, but let us not forget, the region also produces fabulous Whites.
Getting back to the Reds, the thought of their prices brings tears to our eyes.
Through very canny management, some Bordeaux estates have produced limited quantities of excellent and thereby exclusive wines. What makes them even more exclusive is that these wines tend to age well, which results in a delicious roundness. This also leads to these wines being collectable, yielding remarkably high prices at auction.
But you do not have to be super wealthy to savour Bordeaux wines.
We have sought out three organic Bordeaux wines for you to enjoy.
We like Chateau Ogier de Gourgue, a lot.
We have their ever popular and one of our most demanded wines, Cotes de Bordeaux 2015. It is a medium bodied organic red, matured in French oak. With notes of black fruits, it matches well with chicken, red meats and fish.
Our second Bordeaux is Le Reflet D’Ogier Bordeaux 2017. This wine has complex flavours of cherry, redcurrants and blueberries, with undertones of black pepper and mint. It is a well-rounded wine with silky tannins made from 40% Merlot and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Only 8000 bottles of this wine are produced, and we have a few of them available here, in Australia.
Are you looking for something different? Here it is, a Rose from Bordeaux, Le Rose D’Ogier Organic 2019. This is a fresh Rose with soft flavours of melon and raspberry.
So, try our reasonably priced Bordeaux wines. You do not have to be a millionaire, but by buying wisely, you are probably on the road to success.
