Staff Pick Notes

Over the last few years I have come to really love the right-bank wines of the twin Bossuet-Hubert estates of Chateau Peybonhomme-les-Tours (AOC Côtes de Blaye) and Chateau La Grolet (AOC Côtes de Bourg). Vintage after vintage they stay ahead of the curve in modern Bordeaux by delivering wines of freshness, character, and value, and the latest from Peybonhomme-les-Tours is no exception. Certified organic viticulture, no-frills vinification, and 12-month élevage in used barriques give us a wine that is so old-school it just might be mistaken for Bourgeuil… but then the fruit is just a liiiittle riper, and there’s that streak of graphite that puts us squarely on the Gironde rather than the Loire. They don’t make much Bordeaux like this anymore, folks.

Situated on the mid-Atlantic coast of France around the Gironde river, Bordeaux is home to some of the most legendary wines on earth. There are (for all intents and purposes) five grape varieties permitted under French wine law for red Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and, very infrequently, Petit Verdot and Malbec. For white Bordeaux, only three varieties are permitted:...

Cabernet Franc

Relegated to moderate obscurity in modern times, Cabernet Franc is in fact the proud parent of the attention-hogging Cabernet Sauvignon (after an illicit affair with Sauvignon Blanc a hundred-odd years ago). Cabernet Franc has remained close to its roots in France, enjoying small pockets of popularity primarily in the Loire Valley (specifically in Chinon), where it is often bottled as a varietal...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...

Known as Côt throughout much of France, Malbec is the dark-skinned variety that put Argentinian wine on the map - and likewise, Argentinian Malbec saved the grape from near obscurity. The Cahors appellation in France still relies on Malbec to distinguish many of its wines, but the area is exceptional in this regard. As the grape can be quite difficult to cultivate, it has become far less popular...
