About This Wine

Not every Bordeaux wine is built for aging.

Some are crafted to be enjoyed upon release. And here’s even better news: They cost a small fraction of the famous labels such as Chateau Petrus, Chateau d’Yquem, et al. Perhaps better than any other vintner, Bruno Baylet knows how to deliver plenty of value from Bordeaux-grown grapes.

Baylet has made a name for himself as the proprietor of Chateau Landereau and Chateau de l’Hoste Blanc. But he also makes time to make wine for Chateau Puy-Marceau, and his red Bordeaux for that label is a true gem, offering a classic Bordeaux nose and plenty of fruit-driven flavor.

As is the case with most “Bordeaux” designated wines, the Puy-Marceau blend is based on Merlot. Baylet then adds smaller, equal portions of Cabernet Sauvignon for enhanced body and Cabernet Franc for more complex aroma. The cuvee is simultaneously quaffable and food friendly... and ready to drink tonight.
