More about this wine from Bordeaux, France
Raymond and Genevive Jaubert established Jaubert Vineyard in 1970 after Raymond inherited Chateau Landonnet, which had been in his mother’s family for 200 years. They quickly expanded their vineyard and now have four properties under their name. Keeping with the tradition, their children are learning the family wine business that will someday be their own.

This Bordeaux tastes like the full richness of a bass drum bellowing in the Thanksgiving parade. Pinecone-like earthiness, wet river rocks, toasted red apple skins, wet cinnamon sticks and a touch of leather. A sure fire hit for the cool winter months. Big, burly and bold as a left tackle, this bottle is made to keep you warm from your tongue to your toes.
