Wine-making in Bordeaux
We strive to bring you some of the finest vintages the world has to offer. As such, the Ideal Wine Company features a range of fabulous French wines on our product list.
France and wine go together like a horse and carriage. France is the wine making capital of the world. The French have been making wine since the Roman era, and as the world has speeded towards modernity, their vintages have only gotten better. Today, France boasts some of the most famous wine-making regions in the world including Champagne, Burgundy, the Rhone Valley and Bordeaux.
Bordeaux is a city in the south-west of France. The city and its surrounding valleys are known for producing some of the finest red wines in existence, yet they also produce a fantastic array of sweet white wines. The region’s enviable weather and temperate climate lends wine-makers in Bordeaux the ability to produce world-class Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet-Franc, Petit-Verdot, Malbec, Semillon and Carménère grapes, among others.
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2007
Bordeaux is the home of the Pauillac wine-making region. Located on the left-bank of the Gironde estuary, Pauillac produces first-rate Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet-Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes. Some of the most amazing reds in all of Bordeaux are made in Pauillac.
One of these reds is the Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2007, which you can buy from the Ideal Wine Company. Grand-Puy-Lacoste wines are produced on a 90 hectare estate a few kilometres west of the town of Pauillac. Composed of Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, Grand-Puy-Lacoste wines have heady aromas, rich blackcurrant and cassis fruity flavours and velvety textures.
The 2007 is a particularly stunning vintage. Open this bottle and you’ll immediately be greeted with delightful scents of raspberry and blackberry. Take a sip and your palate won’t know what hit it. The Château Grand Puy Lacoste 2007 boasts rich tones of black cherry fruit with subtle hints of cedar to create a wine drinking experience you’ll never forget.
