Chateaux

Chateaux, a Merlot and Cabernet blend from France, is the perfect dry red to warm you up in the winter or to pair with a steak au poivre. This wine is a classic right bank Bordeaux blend that is Merlot heavy rather than Cabernet heavy. Wines from this region have been following the same rules and classifications since 1855. This big, bold red was aged in oak barrels for 12 months creating an elegance that will make your own living room feel like a French chateau. After a few sips, this wine just might leave you a little Sideways.
