About This Wine
Some of the world’s finest wines hail from the Bordeaux region of France.
There are several distinct districts within the appellation, including the home of Chateau Clos La Chapelle — Cotes de Bordeaux Cadillac. There, the vineyards are planted around the town of Cadillac, at the southern end of the Entre-deux-Mers district.
All wines made in Cotes de Bordeaux Cadillac are red, and most are blends of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. That’s the varietal mix embraced by Chateau Clos La Chapelle, and the 2010 vintage is an amazingly soft and plush wine, which means it’s not only a satisfying sipper, but also a versatile companion to food.
Among the entrees recommended by our tasting panel to accompany it: grilled pork with rosemary, a sirloin steak in a wine sauce, stuffed veal, and medium-flavored soft cheeses. When a wine is this good, it deserves food equally as superb... or to simply be savored solo.
