"2007 Bordeauxs are a much more drinkable vintage. I love this wine. I had it with burgers about 5 weeks ago and was completely blown away! A really spectacular, lightweight Bordeaux." -Gary Vaynerchuk
"This medium bodied red is sure to please. Well rounded with soft, supple tannins, red fruit and a silky smooth finish, this is a terrific wine that is ready to drink now. Perfect with food or on its own." -Importer
"Bordeaux AOC wines are supple, fruity, and not too robust. Depending on the blend, they offer delicious aromas of red berries (raspberry), blackcurrant or violet. Thanks to their fruitiness, these wines may be consumed young. Bordeaux AOC wines can be produced on the entire wine-producing area of the Gironde and obey strict quality norms set by the I.N.A.O. (Institut National des Appellations d'Origine). Accordingly, the maximum authorized yield is 55 hL/ha, and the alcohol level (in % of volume) must be between 10 and 13%."
"The Bordeaux and Bordeaux-Superieur Appellations terroir is regional. The red wines from these AOC's are made from grapes harvested all over Bordeaux from authorized grape varieties grown in all of the major soil types, using the region's traditional methods."
"Consequently, these wines are a perfect example of the Bordeaux spirit. The Bordeaux and Bordeaux Superieurs embody the much-appreciated Bordeaux style of harmonious elegance, power, balance and aromatic complexity." -Bordeaux.com
