This property always makes a more modern style of Bordeaux-tastes a lot like some California Cabernets. Toasty oak aromas and flavors. Fine acidity lends to its balance. An easy drinker with an hour decanting.
Drink from 2017 to 2027

I can't believe how good Bordeaux can be for such a reasonable price! No matter how many times Clyde proves it to me, I am surprised again and again by the values in this category. The Poitevin is authentic, honest, satisfying claret for people who love an earthy, dry style to go with food. I am crazy about texture and grip of this Medoc, and can't wait to have it with a big charcoal grilled bone-in ribeye.
Drink from 2017 to 2034

This is smooth, creamy and earthy with aromas of milk chocolate and spice to compliment all the bright dark berry fruit. Delicious now but might be better in a year.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
