Brand: Les Charmes du Marquis
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend
About This Wine:
With more than 300,000 acres of land planted to grapevines, Bordeaux is massive. It’s the largest and, thus, most important wine-producing region of France. And while many of its more than 7,300 wineries release a single wine each vintage, some produce a handful of wines, pushing the appellation’s total well past 10,000.
Separating the best from the rest can be a daunting task. Ultimately, it requires some “insider” information that is shared by the vintners, combined with a lot of tasting. That’s how we uncovered the 2019 Les Charmes du Marquis, a blend of traditional Bordeaux varieties that’s packed with personality.
The cuvee marries an array of red, black and blue fruit flavors, joined by floral, spice and chocolate notes. A gold medal winner at the annual competition staged by the Union of French Oenologists, this is a truly magical wine.
