WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
“ mar • GO BORE • doh “
Our selection has all the pedigree
that can be mustered from the most
heralded wine area in the world,
Bordeaux. It is a huge place, broken up
by small villages in varying degrees of
stature. Les Clefs is in Margaux, arguably
the best appellation there. Typically
Margaux is exciting, extraordinary and
expensive. Nothing really comes close.
Wine has been heralded from this
village for 2,000 years. The land - the
soil - is passed down from generation
to generation. Today, it is owned by the
Lurton Family, whose history goes back
200 years or so. They are one of the
premier producers of Bordeaux, with
properties and brands in all of the best
areas.
Their heritage began in Bordeaux, but
the current crop of Lurton wines have
expanded well beyond those borders
into California, Chile, Argentina and
the like. They currently produce over
500,000 cases of wine from all over the
world.
The hallowed ground of Margaux
houses several of the greatest wines
in the world. The wines are more
approachable on release, but can last
for decades.
Les Clefs is a blend of 60% Cabernet
Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The flavors
are an amalgam of slightly charred
black fruits, like plum and cherry,
mixed with an almost sweet vanilla
component, licorice, leather and earth.
These flavors are all held in check by
the smooth, silky tannins that envelop
your palate and etch into your memory.
