Pre-Arrival: Aged and ready to drink wines Ex-Château from Bordeaux - Can't beat the provenance!

Arrives August 2012

One of the recent great success stories in Bordeaux is that of Hélène Garcin who has been producing any number of superb wines at her estates in St. Émilion (Château Barde-Haut), Pomerol (Clos l'Eglise) and Pessac-Léognan (Château Haut Bergey). Winemaking is a family affair chez Garcin as Hélène's mother; Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard, is related to the Cathiard family of Château Smith Haut-Lafitte.

In addition to the incredible wines emanating from these estates, Hélène makes a very special wine at Château Branon which is also located in Pessac-Léognan. Blended utilizing a large percentage of Merlot, this luxury cuvée is just that. Rich, unctuous and velvety smooth, annual production of this gem is limited to roughly 500 cases. Under her guidance, this ancient property, one of the oldest in all of Bordeaux, has been restored to the level of grandeur it enjoyed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Hélène and her husband Patrick have also recently embarked on a winemaking project in Argentina and this venture has been received warmly by journalists around the globe with many positive critical reviews and numerous high scores.

Hélène is both conscientious and astute in providing the contemporary Bordeaux consumer fairly priced wines that are juicy, rich and fruit laden while still reflecting, in uncompromising fashion, the terroirs whence they originate. Her wines are perennial Parker faves and garner top scores and favorable reviews from many other prestigious publications such as Wine Spectator and La Revue du Vin de France. Don't pass up this opportunity to procure some of her high-scoring wines procured directly from Bordeaux.
