Jean-Marc Sauboua knows a thing or two about great Bordeaux – after all, he trained at First Growth Château Haut-Brion. Today, Jean-Marc is chief winemaker at Le Chai au Quai, a “fabulous venture” (Decanter), where he crafts unique, first-class wines.
His latest mission? A stylish southern French Cabernet with loads of black-fruit flavor – and a top-value price tag. No easy feat. But take a sip of Belle Roche, and we think you’ll see that he’s accomplished his goal.
It scooped double-gold and one of the most talked-about trophies in the wine industry right now: “French Wine of the Year” at the 2018 China Wine & Spirits Best Value Awards. Then it won gold at the 2018 Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition. Clearly, Jean-Marc nailed it. But how?
Using his extensive network of growers, he found a special parcel of grapes from the Languedoc that reminded him of high-quality Bordeaux. The result is a rich Cabernet with concentrated flavors of black currant, spice, and toast. Sure to delight from its well-balanced palate through to the long, complex finish.
As with a fine Bordeaux, Jean-Marc recommends decanting the wine an hour before serving to soften the tannins and open up all those black-fruit flavors. And just like Bordeaux, Belle Roche was made to be enjoyed with food. It will be delicious with a juicy steak, rack of lamb, and even hearty stews or casseroles.
There are very few cases of this top-value, hugely acclaimed Cab to go around. Grab yours today.
