Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are what I like to call the BIG THREE. They are the most widely grown grape varietals in the world's most famous wine region, Bordeaux - and when they are blended together they make MAGIC. Why? Because these three grapes all complement each other perfectly, fitting together like puzzle pieces and making wines that are greater than the sum of their parts. Merlot's fleshy, ripe fruits and soft tannins mesh beautifully with the firm tannins and dark, brooding fruits of Cabernet Sauvignon, while the addition of Cabernet Franc provides freshness and finesse via its bright fruit profile as well as floral, peppery aromatics. Factor in the viticulturally rich terroir of Bordeaux and you've got wines of unparalleled elegance and complexity. Check it out with today's PHENOMENALLY DELICIOUS Six-Pack Special, the 2012 Château de Birot Première Côtes de Bordeaux!

Château de Birot is situated on the hills that overlook the Garonne River near Cadillac in Entre-deux-Mers, roughly 35 kilometers from the city of Bordeaux. The estate has been making wine with impressive pedigree for over 200 years. Built during the second half of the 18th century for the important Bordeaux wine merchant Monsieur de Parouty, Château Birot is centered in an agricultural area where the best soils (rich with clay and limestone) for growing grapes of both the Right and Left Banks convene. The estate was purchased in 1989 by Eric and Hélène Fournier-Casteja, both of whom hail from winemaking families throughout Sauternes and Saint-Émilion. (winery notes)

Today's wine is a blend of 66% Merlot 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc aged in oak for 18 months (20% new) before bottling - and it's a real showstopper! Medium-to-full bodied, it abounds with dark fruit aromas and flavors of brambly black cherry and cassis laced with leather, spice and just a kiss of oak. Velvety-textured up front and on the mid-palate, it possesses a vibrant acidity that emerges on the long finish.

Stock up on the 2012 Château de Birot Première Côtes de Bordeaux and enjoy special occasion-worthy wine any night of the week for under $11 per bottle. CHEERS!
