Harmon Skurnik "This is one of the finest values in Bordeaux, showing depth and purity to its classical frame."

Jim English "Certified Organic Bordeaux from the Entre-deux-Mers consisting of 30+ year old vines grown on a clay and limestone soils. 100% hand harvested, then made with indigenous yeast, fermented in concrete, and then aged in barrel (20% new). Notes of blackcurrant, mint, sandalwood, vanilla, & dark purple fruit."

Reverse Wine Snob "..Fantastique!.... An earthy aroma that also features some dark fruit, lots of dried herbs and a little mint and cola. The wine tastes really delicious with the dark fruit taking center stage in the mouth but still balanced by some nice earthy streaks. Those hints of dried herbs from the nose carry over and you’ll also find some oaky licorice notes. All of this is wrapped up in a very smooth, almost creamy texture. It ends dry with a mineral tinged finish featuring lingering cola and licorice notes under more of that delicious dark fruit." (2010 vintage)

Reverse Wine Snob "you may be wondering about the “Superieur” designation on this wine, which is exactly as it sounds — a label given to wines that have slightly more stringent production regulations than the regular Bordeaux wines.....the Bordeaux Superieur wines tend to come from older vines with lower yields and they spend more time aging before their release."

The Winemaker "While the image of Bordeaux is formed by the prestige of the Classified Growths of the Medoc and Haut Medoc, the region offers many small, quality driven family owned properties from the satellite appellations along the banks of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. My ‘Bordeaux Collection’ represents the fine work of dedicated winemakers crafting wines from these lesser known areas. Discover the delicious, food friendly and great value wines from these wonderful regions."

73% Merlot & 27% Cabernet Sauvignon

Chateau Saint Julian is the second wine made by the winemakers who from the remarkabale Chateau La Grangere in St. Emilion. This ecocert certified organic wine is made from mostly Merlot grown on limestone slopes in the Entre-deux-Mers region of Bordeaux with an average age of 30 years. All of the grapes are hand harvested and aged in barrique, with about 30% new barrels. The owner of this estate also owns the prestigious Saint-Emilion Grand Cru – the Château La Grangère – and a Graves de Vayres – the Château Tillede.

Entre-deux-Mers is a large wine sub-region of Bordeaux in southwestern France. Its name translates literally as "between two seas", although the seas in question are in fact rivers – the Garonne and Dordogne, which respectively form the area's southern and northern boundaries. Entre-deux-Mers is home to various appellations, which produce wines in styles ranging from the sweet botrytized whites of Cadillac, Loupiac and Sainte-Croix-du-Mont – all close to the northeast bank of the Garonne – to the dry table wines of Sainte-Foy and Graves de Vayres, closer to the Dordogne. The extended region along the Garonne, from the cluster of sweet white appellations as far as the area to the east of Bordeaux city, is the red wine appellation Côtes de Bordeaux – until 2009 called Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, a title now reserved for sweet whites.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Stephanie Burkhart "Bursting with cherries, plum and red raspberries, red rose and bordeaux dust on the nose. The palate reiterates the nose with flavors of cherries and berries balanced by medium tannins. The mouthfeel is lush in this elegant-yet-powerful wine it's a balance of poise, beauty and strength for an out-of-this-world price, pairs well with sausages and barbecued meats, as well as hard cheeses."

Jesse Warner-Levine "Primarily red fruit with a subtle oak component, this wine is a classic Bordeaux style blend. Well structured and balanced."

Jason Main Master Sommelier "from the BEST vintage in decades! Robert Parker rated this vintage a whopping 96 points.... It way over delivers for the money and could even lay down for a few years to coax out some more complexity. Château Bellevue Claribes shows a luscious, deep crimson color. On the nose, red and black fruits mingle with a dash of spice. This balanced wine offers remarkably pleasant, silky tannins that endow it with a charming, lengthy finish. A total classic." (2015 vintage)

Gilbert & Gaillard "A crowd-pleasing style." (2013 vintage)

70% Merlot, 20% Cab. Sauvignon, 10% Cab. Franc

Chateau Bellevue Claribes has been in the Sellier de Brugiere family since 1720.
The estate, located in Sainte Foy, half way between Saint Emilion and Monbazillac, has a rich history. On the estate are limestone caves, still used today where Gallo-Romans stored wines made from vines planted in 235 B.C, and located nearby an Abbey that monks in the Middle Ages made wine.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. Its three trump cards are diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 percent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation. The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot.

1 x Château La Justice 2016 ~ Bordeaux, France


Organic

Le Devoir Newspaper "Rather proudly adorned, without ostentation,...ample enough to be savoured, but also more restrained, flirting with suppleness and liveliness."

John Hattersley "A classic Bordeaux from the best vineyards overlooking the beautiful Dordogne. Made under Michel Rolland oenologist-extraordinaire's watchful eye. Generous black fruit with a hint of coffee, lots of energy and fine aromatics on the finish: it shows how once Fronsac enjoyed stature to rival Pomerol and St Emilion."

The Winemaker "Red and black fruits are very present with notes of wood and vanilla. On the palate, the wine reveals roundness and power. The finish is persistent and elegant. The Château La Justice benefits from the region's mild climate and limestone soils. It contains strong aromas of ripe raspberries, cassis and blackberries as well as hints of spices and vanilla, as well as very subtle wood notes.I t is as complex on the palate as on the nose, opens dense and concentrated, has an undeniable elegance and ends in a long, very soft finish. It is best to set aside an aromatic hard cheese, a Mediterranean vegetable dish or a strong beef steak."

100% Merlot

Chateau La Justice is owned by the same owners as the historic, well-known estate, Château de la Dauphine. Both wineries are farmed organically which is still a rare accomplishment in Bordeaux.

Wine Enthusiast "This lightly structured wine is all fruit. Its red berry flavors are already well integrated with the smoky tannins that form its core." (2014 Vintage)

The Winemaker "Aromas of cherries, cassis, blueberries, cedar, tobacco, cocoa, pencil, pepper, laurel, oregano and violet. Fleshy, juicy, velvety on the palate, dense fruit, delicately spicy, complex, very elegant and long-lasting. Aged for 12 months in 1/3 new oak barrels." (2014 Vintage)

Roger Barlow "There are very pleasant fruity, ripe plum and spice aromas on the nose that continue on the palate. This is a delicious wine with a generous palate, fine-grained tannins, a voluptuous structure and a long finish." (2015 vintage)
