About This Wine:
Location. Location. Location. That phrase dates to 1944 when a real estate expert coined it to describe the importance of setting and maintaining land and home values. But it also could be applied to the world of wine, and there’s no place on Earth that carries as much weight in the wine world as the Bordeaux appellation of France.
North of the city of Bordeaux, the Dordogne River and the Garonne meet, forming an estuary known as the Gironde. There, the weather is perfect for growing red grape varieties, and nearly 300,000 acres of land are devoted to vineyards. Each year, more than 7,500 producers craft 700 million bottles of wine.
Finding exceptional Bordeaux reds is easy. Unearthing exceptional Bordeaux reds that don’t cost a hundred dollars or more is a different matter, and that’s where we come in with this La Croix d'Argent “Lot 22” wine. It’s a truly exceptional wine from a remarkable place.
