More about this wine from Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux may be the most famous wine region in the world. In the last several decades, this mega wine production region has become expensive and an enclave for the affluent. With a little digging, we've found the old soul and excellent value-driven wines in Bordeaux. Chateau Tour Chapoux dates back to the 13th century when the vineyards were planted by the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. The modern property has been owned by the same family for two centuries, handed down from generation to generation.


We've put together some quick tips on how to visit Bordeaux and ditch any sense of being intimidated with this guide. Plan your visit while sipping on this juicy Bordeaux red with wafts of candied fruit, chalk, and wild mint. The palate brings some solid body and ripeness that leaves an elegant richness clinging to your tastebuds.
