Tasting Notes

A classic Bordeaux with all the expected Old World earthiness. From a château renovated just 30 years ago, and grapes planted in 1850, this full-bodied wine is quite fresh and elegant with notes of forest floor, blackcurrant, and cedar box.

Staff Pick Notes

Here is a beautiful left bank Bordeaux. Chateau Aney has a history that dates back to the 19th century, with the most recent owners buying this abandoned property in the 1970's. With a full update of the winemaking facility, Jean Raimond and his son Pierre returned the estate to Cru Bourgeois status. The star here is classic left bank terrior, with the 15 hectare estate resting on gravel soils tucked between St-Julien and Margaux. This is a classic Haut-Medoc, boasting mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a perfect balance of power and finesse.The cassis and wood and herbaceousness coexist and play off each other in waves, leading to beautiful lingering finish. Such a shame this winery has been sold to Clément Fayat and its entire production will go to "flesh out" Fayat's second wine. Drink this while you can!

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,...
