State store pick of the week

Chateau Saint Sulpice Bordeaux

Bordeaux, France


PLCB Item No. 3616

Many of Europe’s most respected wines carry no mention of their grape varieties on the front label, as with this delicious, lightweight merlot-based blend. Bordeaux is a port city in southwestern France that earned its sterling reputation for fine wine by making this versatile and delicious style, once known as “claret.”

Where many red wines were heavier and stronger, the clarets of Bordeaux were lighter and brighter with more finesse, qualities ideally suited to flattering a wide range of foods. Today, people often think only of the most expensive and collectible Bordeaux wines, but the modest wines of lesser-known chateaux like this one are well worth exploring.

Try this classy red with anything from lamb kebabs to cheese pizza.

* Sale price through April 27; regularly $14.99
