Besides the great food Bordeaux has yet to be known for (now you all know), they have a great selection of wines, from light to bodied, from white to red. They specialized in wines that can be paired with food, and those, which can be enjoyed as is.
For the first timers, who do not know which kind of wine would fit their liking, the Wine Flights are a good place to start. Bordeaux offers its customers with the Red Wine Flights and the White Wine Flights, which is basically three different glasses of different kinds of wines which varies in taste.
The White Wine Flights include a glass of Rive Haute Colombard Sauvignon, a lively white wine. Nose characterized by acacia and honeysuckle notes. Ripe citrus fruit such as pineapple and lime in the mouth accompanied by refreshing acidity; a glass of Colombelle, which has fresh and intense aromas, with floral and exotic fruit notes. It’s round on the palate, accompanied by flavors of ripe fruit, pineapple and white peach, giving a smooth and tasty balance. It has a citrus finish; and lastly a glass of Yvves Borie Chardonnay, which is characterized by mingling aromas and taste of peaches, grapefruit and honey dew melon.
The Red Wine Flights include a glass of Rive Haute Merlot Tannat, which is garnet red in color, with generous aromas of blackcurrant, plum and hint of licorice. It’s round and silky in the mouth with a fresh and fruity finish; a glass of Discipulus Syrah, which is fragrant, lively, with fresh fruity aroma on the nose.
