Just 15 minutes from Bordeaux, a castle surrounded by a moat is so picture-perfect it looks as though it was plucked from just about any Disney princess fairy tale and plopped in to the Médoc. That castle is Château d’Agassac, one of the oldest château in region.

Not only is Château d’Agassac one of the prettiest château in the Médoc, it’s also pretty easily accessible by public transportation from Bordeaux center. Open to the public for guided visits seven days per week, which is pretty rare in Bordeaux, and with an onsite restaurant loved by both tourists and locals, Château d’Agassac shouldn’t be missed.

Château D'Agassac 2012
55% CABERNET SAUVIGNON 45% MERLOT
The beautiful silky structure provides a rich, full-bodied, supple and well-balanced Bordeaux. Small red fruit aromas in its youth give way to the menthol, tobacco and cedar that are characteristic of the Médoc terroir. Intriguing spice, fruit cake, and flowers. Almost Margaux like on the nose. Aged in Burgundy barrels.

$62.99 per bottle.

LES TOURELLES DE LONGUEVILLE – PAUILLAC 2014

The floral, fresh and complex nose reveals aromas of spices and redcurrants. The attack is smooth, elegant and subtle, leading into robust structure. The finish is elegant and long-lasting, carried along nicely by its tannins and nice ripe fruit. Single parcel, very old merlot from the famous Pichon family.

CHÂTEAU MOULIN DE LA ROSE – SAINT-JULIEN 2014

The colour is rich and beautiful with a powerful and elegant aroma. The mouth is a festival of freshly picked red and black fruits. This wine has ripe, crispy tannins and a long finish. 18 months in French oak, 30% new barrels. Approachable now, especially for a Saint-Julien.

$83.99 per bottle
CHÂTEAU SÉGUR DE CABANAC – SAINT-ESTÈPHE 2014

This wine has expressive penetrating red and dark fruit on the nose, such as blackberries and cherries. Energetic acidity, spices, vanilla, tobacco and earth on the mid palate, and a long finish. Fabulous to drink now, but will benefit greatly with a few years of ageing. 20 months in French oak with 30% new barrels.
