More about this wine from France
Château de Gassis 2016, a Bordeaux Supérieur from the Commune of Montussan in the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers, is a testament to the Maulin family's dedication to crafting exceptional wines. Their 53-hectare vineyard, predominantly planted with 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, thrives in the clay-limestone soils of a picturesque hillside.

Nestled in the heart of Bordeaux, this winery is a bit like a time machine, transporting you back to the roots of winemaking. The history here is so rich that even the soil seems to whisper tales of the past. But let's not get too caught up in history; we're here for the 2016 vintage.

This Bordeaux is like the cool kid who effortlessly makes friends at a party. It's a red wine blend that's got a little bit of everything – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a touch of Cabernet Franc. These grapes, grown with love in the French countryside, give the wine its unique personality.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

Take succulent duck meat, drizzle it with a tangy balsamic glaze, and wrap it in soft taco shells. The wine's rich fruitiness complements the duck's flavors, while the acidity in the balsamic glaze adds a delightful contrast.
