This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

De Luze Bordeaux 2018

It may not be possible to get the family together this Thanksgiving, but that’s what video chats are for! Set a spot for the phone, tablet or laptop at the table and get the family together virtually. Or, go one better and plan on making the same dishes and desserts, and select the same bottle of wine. A perfect pick is De Luze Bordeaux blend, a red that will pair with anything on your Thanksgiving table or any of the tables in your video chat. Cheers to a Thanksgiving filled with happiness, health, and good wine!

Tasting Notes: This classic Bordeaux blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon brings red plum, cherry and blackberry notes framed by balanced acidity and toasty oak.

Enjoy With: Roast poultry or beef, oven baked veggies, hearty soups, gouda and cheddar cheese, or just enjoy on its own.

Style: A fruity, medium-bodied red wine.

Terroir/Region: Bordeaux, France may be the most famous wine region in the world. After centuries refining their style and building deep knowledge of their soils, the Bordelaise are at the top of their game. Their well-rounded, food-friendly red and white wines can match any meal and run from juicy, every-day sippers, to some of the world’s top offerings. There is always more to learn about Bordeaux, whether you are an aficionado or just being introduced to the region!

Producer: In 1820, Baron Alfred de Luze founded Maison A. de Luze & Fils, specializing in the aging of great Bordeaux wines. A visionary and skilful negotiator, Baron De Luze was one of the pioneers who developed the Bordeaux wine import/export trade through his tireless travels. Now, the Maison has joined the Grands Vins de Gironde, expanding its reach in France and around the world.

Availability: De Luze red Bordeaux is available online and in the France section of your local LCBO. It’s widely available, so tell the family to grab a bottle as well for your virtual Thanksgiving toasts!
