Bordeaux Rouge 2016

Beau-Rivage means “beautiful shore” and is a tribute to the picturesque landscape along the Gironde and the rivers that feed it, the Dordogne and the Garonne. Throughout geologic history, the influence of those rivers created the gravelly soils Bordeaux is famous for -- soils that produce some the world’s finest wine.

The vines producing Beau-Rivage come from top AC Bordeaux vineyards,   situated on slopes between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers.  The mix of clay, gravel and sandy soils helps create the unique Bordeaux terroir, identifiable in Beau-Rivage.  100% tank fermented and no oak.  The wine is made in a very fruit-forward easy going style that is for early consumption.

Tasting Notes

Shining ruby at its core with violet reflections, Beau-Rivage rouge shows fragrant blackberry, raspberry and boysenberry with a fruity Bordeaux typicity on the nose.  The palate is medium-bodied with firm structure and well-integrated tannins.
