Bordeaux

Description

Founded in 1959, Chateau Landereau is currently run by 3rd generation owner Bruno Baylet. Nearly 200 acres are farmed in the gravelly hillsides of Sadirac, 12 miles southeast of Bordeaux, in the Entre-Deux-Mers region. The wines are impressive, and offer the hallmark character of traditional Bordeaux in a sleek and modern profile.

Tasting Notes: Intense and concentrated, with ripe, spicy, cassis and dark fruit character. Well-structured but with soft, sweet tannins. Produced in a polished, modern style, with a long, persistent finish.

Serve With: Excellent with red meats (hangar steak, braised lamb shank) and richly flavored fowl (tea smoked duck).
