Product Description

Bordeaux is divided by the great Gironde Estuary and the rivers that flow into it. Wines made on the Left Bank of the river tend to be dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon in their blend and those on the Right by Merlot. The great Clarets of the Left are typically elegant, balanced thoroughbreds whereas those on the Right are the rich, powerful chargers of old. You’ll find both styles executed meticulously in this case; revealing their true beauty.
