Cuvee Joelle Malbec et Merlot
Among the many noteworthy French grapes, two have become especially treasured for their stunning wines.

Cuvèe Joëlle fuses red plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, and fresh herbs. This exciting red blend is meant to be paired with fun dishes like bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, pungent cheeses, and bacon blue cheese burgers.

Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc
When we found Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc, we were blown away by this delicate, layered white wine with generous flavors of zesty citrus, fresh grass, gooseberry and honeysuckle. White Bordeaux is not on most people's wine radar, but we love this sophisticated wine that has a Sauvignon Blanc’s appeal, with an added complexity that appeals to true enthusiasts. Do not miss this limited wine, which won the Gold for Best Bordeaux Blend in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.
