Red AOC Bordeaux wine selected by Delices & Gourmandises

The presence of the red AOC Bordeaux wine in Delices & Gourmandises cellar is not a surprise since it's the world’s greatest and most sold Bordeaux appellation.

AOC Bordeaux Rouge in Délices et Gourmandises cellar

Bordeaux’ broadest generic name, AOC Bordeaux is produced across the department of the Gironde, outside forest areas and areas of marshes and swamps. It covers a wide variety of soils, letting the winemaker choose the grape varieties most suitable for the soil quality.

The main grape varieties used in the production of AOC Bordeaux are Merlot, which gives the fruity taste and the velvety texture and Cabernet Sauvignon, which gives it its tannic structure. To add roundness and spicy aromas, winemakers add Cabernet Franc. It is also possible to find Petit Verdot, Malbec or côt and even Carmenère, but not very often.

The presence of the red AOC Bordeaux in Delices & Gourmandises cellar is explained by its strong reputation but also the flexibility of its wines. They are fruity and not very vigorous. Their aromas, usually of red fruits, depend from the blend chosen by the winemaker. It is advisable to drink the red AOC Bordeaux young enough, after four or five years at most, although some may have a better aging potential.

Red AOC Bordeaux wines are simple and easy to drink. They are better served at a temperature of 15° or 16° with red meat.
