After selling out in record speed, this is more of of one of our most popular exclusive import Bordeaux wines. From Fronsac to Pauillac, Bordeaux is synonymous with stunning terroir, and the 2011 Château Fontana is an easy-to-drink, fruit-driven representation of that land. Grown in clay and limestone soil of the Gensac region of Bordeaux, it comes with the added bonus of being about a hundredth the cost of some of its priciest neighbors.  

Made from mostly Merlot (due to the fact that it handles the terroir best, thriving where certain grapes may not) and rounded out with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it's the kind of wine that, when tasted on-site with the winemaker, had our Sourcing Team practically asking to take the caseload home.

Featuring ripe red fruit with a bold and spice-driven nose and palate, this defines easy drinking to a T, while still maintaining the integrity of a good Bordeaux. For best results, enjoy with a good meal and great friends. 

Inside Fact: The AOC wasn't put in place until 1935, after phylloxera and two wars threatened the survival of the French wine industry altogether.

What the heck! For this kind of money, you won't find Lafite in the bottle. But you will find an easy-drinking, delicious, straightforward bottle of red wine from Bordeaux. Deeply colored, juicy, nice and spicy, with some good peppery notes and sweet wood. Wherever it comes from, this is a good bottle of red wine. -PM 

Deeply garnet colored, with juicy red and black fruit, a hint of spice, with some good peppery notes and sweet wood on the finish.

Pair with robust meat dishes especially beef and lamb. Try boeuf Bourguignon or even coq au vin. For cheeses: Camembert, Brie and Roquefort are regarded as good mates for Bordeaux because the strong cheese balances the tannins in the wine.

Beginning June 12, 2013, we're offering the most innovative warm weather shipping program. Every bottle is handled with impeccable care; from our temperature-controlled warehouse, leading-edge packaging and refrigerated trucking solutions, the end result is wine delivered in pristine condition; all with our palate guarantee. We will ship wines via FedEx refrigerated ground service; however, there is a small surcharge that offsets a fraction of the additional cost.

Please note that we do our very best to get shipments out each week, but only ship once per week (on Thursday) for arrival into our east coast facility. Orders must be submitted before Sunday midnight Pacific Standard Time to be eligible for shipping out the following Thursday. Orders that don’t make the cut-off will remain safely in our temperature-controlled warehouse until the following week.

All refrigerated ground orders will be delivered the following Tuesday with your wine safely stored in a temperature controlled environment until the morning of delivery.
