This past April we made our annual trek to Bordeaux to taste the 2015 vintage barrel samples as well as hunt down great values from top appellations of the region. This is the second round of many new arrivals with one more batch coming within a few weeks. Take advantage of these excellent buys from prominent appellations such as Pomerol, Pauillac, Haut-Medoc, Fronsac, Saint-Emilion, Margaux and Moulis while supplies last!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2010 Chateau Arnauton (Fronsac) $19.99*

Lively, with a taut plum skin frame that eventually melds nicely into the core of raspberry, warm cherry compote and red currant fruit. Charcoal and chalk lend definition and length to the finish, which is well-packed, but racy overall. Drink now through 2020.

2010 Chateau Laujac (Médoc) $19.99*

Bright dark ruby color. Aromas of black fruits, blackcurrants flavors and aromas. Good structure. Volume on attack and perfect balance with a long finish.

2010 Chateau Livran (Médoc) $21.99*

Very purple color, slightly closed nose at first, opening up into a pleasant smokiness, blackberry, undergrowth and an overtone of cinnamon oak make it come across as a very modern Bordeaux. Medium-bodied, grippy but not overly tannic, symptomatic of the vintage.

2015 Clos Des Lunes Lune D’Argent (Grand Vin Bordeaux) $21.99*

Pale gold color with green hues. Lively citrus nose, coated with sweet aromas of acacia and lime. Rich pulpy flesh of ripe Semillon. Delicious mineral complexity. The acidity of Sauvignon provides a good tension. Balanced and fruity long finish.

2008 La Salle De Chateau Poujeaux (Moulis) $24.99*

Truffle, earth, cassis, licorice, smoke and oak aromas pair well with the medium/full bodied, soft textured, spicy, cassis filled finish. Poujeaux is a clear contender for one of the best Bordeaux value wines from the Medoc, year after year.

2009 Chateau Bel Orme Tronquoy de Lalande (Haut-Médoc) $24.99*

Under the garnet color, the nose is medium and complex. Dry, full-bodied and woody red featuring refreshing acidity and lush fruit. On the palate, it showcases fleshy tannins and a broad mouthfeel that leads into a long finish.

2009 Chateau Tour du Haut-Moulin (Haut-Médoc) $24.99*

Very dark red in color. Blackberry, black currants, graphite, and plums fill your nose. Palate starts with plums with hints of earth. moderate tannin, but a nice smooth mineral driven finish.

2012 Chateau La Tour De Mons (Margaux) $29.99*

This is a dense wine, solid with black plum and berry flavors that show great warmth and richness. At this stage the wood aging does give some bitter dark chocolate, although this will integrate. This will lay down for at least 10 years.

2009 Chateau Haut Ferrand (Pomerol) $39.99*

Rich purple color with aromas of fresh ripe purple fruits and cinnamon spice. Touch of Humus and plums linger on the palate for a formidable finish.

2008 Chateau Balestard La Tonnelle (Saint-Emilion) $39.99*

Big, ripe and rich in a way the reflects both the vintage and the new Bordeaux model, this bottling begins with a classic St. Emilion nose of ripe cherries, tobacco and roasted herbs and follows with like-minded flavors that show plenty of ripeness and extract. Supple in front and fairly tannic in back, it extends very well at finish.

2008 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste (Pauillac) $69.99*

Coffee, earth, blackberry and tobacco notes open to a wine that still wants a few more years in the cellar to shed its tannins. The wine ends with a dark cherry and olive tapenade finish.
