2015 Bordeaux!

b1

Bigly.

Big league.

Tomato tomahto. Either way you look it these 2015 Bordeaux are pretty stellar for the money... unless you ask The Donald. But he doesn't drink anyway, so what does he know. Whether you're in the Hillary camp or a Trumpette we can all agree that this threesome of French reds is going to make the election season a little more tolerable. But hey, I'm not one to ever mix wine and politics! I just know that I haven't tasted a lineup of under-$15 Bordeaux that tastes this good since Reagan was president.

The Wine Spectator says (and other critics believe the same) that the Bordeaux wine harvest 2015 is a "potential classic". After several challenging years Mother Nature gave Bordeaux a beautiful growing season.

"We had a great winter, very cold and rainy," said Pierre Courdurie of Château Croix de Labrie in St.-Emilion. "The spring started with sun and no frost. Flowering was perfect: It took just two days in early June, which put us 2 weeks earlier compared to 2014 and almost on the same schedule as 2010. Then July was very hot and dry, one of the hottest in more than 30 years. In August we had just the perfect rainfall which made the ripening perfect."

These wines are ON SALE NOW! Take a Drive to FranksWine on North Union Street and taste them with Scott Biggs (not Biggly!) on Saturday 11:30AM - 3:30PM... and on Sunday 12Noon - 4PM. We'll have a selection of cheeses & charcuterie to pair up with this French threesome... join us!

We love good stuff here on North Union Street.

Chateau Macou-Lagrange 2015
Regularly Priced at $19.99
$13.59 with 12-pack Sampler Case Purchase!

70% Merlot ~ 25% Cabernet Franc ~ 5% Cab Sauvignon

A very aromatic style, with black tea, apple wood and tobacco leading the way, with more reserved, supple blackberry, black cherry and currant fruit on the back end. Very silky through the finish, as the tea note lingers.

Chateaua Bel-Air Laclotte 2015

$12.29 with 12-pack Sampler Case Purchase!

70% Merlot ~ 30% Cabernet Franc

This wine displays a rich, deep purple color, with appealing aromas of blackcurrant and vanilla. The palate is supple with floral notes intense, fresh fruit flavors balance beautifully with silky tannins. Fine oaky notes emphasize the range of subtle flavors on the finish.

Chateau Tarin 2015

$12.29 with 12-pack Sampler Case Purchase!

70% Merlot ~ 25% Cabernet Franc ~ 5% Cab Sauvignon

Dark garnet color with tile-red highlights. Aromas of black cherries and cinnamon with a hint of smoke and toasted wood. Strong backbone, and a bit rustic and earthy. Tannins are present and vigorous. Still quite young.
