Great for Date Night

Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon rule the vineyards of Bordeaux, but there’s a whole backbench of lesser-known grape varieties that go into the region’s mouthwatering blends. Winemakers use these other varieties to create fully balanced and complex wines. Deciding what grapes to use without overshadowing the stars is a delicate choice requiring keen skill, experience and intuition.
