With the fall season fast approaching, it’s time to go light fruity white wines to the bolder flavors of Bordeaux wines.
If you haven’t yet tried a Bordeaux, you are in for a treat. The Bordeaux Wine Council recently launched the 2013 Today's Bordeaux program, which can be found in local stores and restaurants and highlight a variety of celebrations and tastes from wines produced in Bordeaux, including dry white wines, rose, red, and sauternes (sweet wines).
With the majority of wines retailing for under $35, the price point is approachable for all consumers. Included in the collection is Chateau Le Bonnat, a well structured oaky wine that paired up well with a juicy grilled ribeye. If you prefer a more earthy and smoky flavor, try the Chateau Bourbon La Chapelle, which goes well with a nice rich dish of pasta Bolognese.
If you want to lighten things up a little, don’t miss the Chateau La Maroutine, a fruity wine that pairs up perfectly with oysters, scallops and virtually any seafood dish.
