Two Petit Chateau Bordeaux Values!


2018 Chateau Pierrefitte Lalande de Pomero...$19.99 / 750ml
Superb red color with intense garnet reflections. An expressive nose that exhales pleasant notes of red fruits coated in spices. An ample mouth, with substance and melted tannins. A long and delicious finish.
Pair with mushrooms, Provençal-style rabbit, or cheese platters.

2018 Chateau Haut Veyrac Les Sens du Lisse...$14.99 / 750ml
The Château Haut-Veyrac property, owned by the Castaing family, is located on one of the hills overlooking the village of Saint-Émilion in Saint-Étienne de Lisse. The vineyard now extends over an exceptional terroir of 9 hectares in one piece. The clay-limestone soil makes it possible to cultivate the Merlot Noir and Cabernet Franc grape varieties in the best conditions.
Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Deep and dark red color.
The nose is toasted with notes of strawberry, blackcurrant and vanilla
On the palate, the wine is unctuous while offering great liveliness.
The tannins are melted and silky and bring some notes of tobacco.
Traditional ageing in oak barrels for 18 to 24 months, depending on the vintage.
Ideal to accompany white and red meats, it will work wonders with a chocolate dessert.
