Think Bordeaux is all about fancy châteaux, luxury cars and $1,000 bottles? Think again. Bordeaux might be the most prestigious wine region in France, but it still has hundreds of small family-run wineries like Château Moulin de la Roquille.
Chateau Moulin de la Roquille's L'esperance is a full-bodied red with a rich nose of smoke, herb and berry aromas. The palate is dominated by delicious plush black cherry fruit flavors, smooth tannins and a hint of cut wood before a long, silky finish. Perfect for beef shortribs, lamb, hearty stews, and ripe cheeses.
