Le Grand Chai Bordeaux 2016 2016

Bordeaux is probably the most famous wine region in the world. And because quality is at an all-time high, there’s never been a better time to be a fan (or become one) of its classic reds. As The Wine Advocate’s Neal Martin says of 2016:“...we are looking at a vintage that can send tingles down the spine and back up again …”

Your taste comes from Le Chai au Quai, a 19th-century cellar in the heart of Bordeaux that Decanter magazine hailed as “a fabulous venture.” It was converted to a boutique workshop by Tony Laithwaite and now Château Haut-Brion alum Jean-Marc Sauboua works his magic here – using the ripest fruit from top vineyards across the region.

Jean-Marc’s smooth, French barrel-aged Merlot red is a beautiful, deep crimson color and offers up deep aromas of cigar box and red berries. Seductive red currant and plum follow through on the palate – you might even pick up a hint of vanilla and cinnamon. Perfect for your favorite cut of beef.
