Presidial by Jean Luc Thunevin, Bordeaux 2016
GRAPES: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
TASTING NOTES: Presidial boasts explosive fruits in the glass. Aromas are overflowing with raspberry and blackberry, followed by a hint of roses and just a dash of tobacco and cedar. A blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is full on the palate, but soft and smooth, with well-integrated tannins and a lively finish. Pair a glass of this with food to really feel it come to life -- this bottle is perfect for backyard BBQs. Our go-to? BBQ beef ribs and a creamy potato salad.
About the Producer
Jean-Luc Thunevin is one of St. Emilioin’s most respected winemakers. His vision of super small-production and super-high quality wines paved the wine for the new Bordeaux types, starting the whole “garage” movement back in 1989. Garage wines are incredibly small-production wines from tiny parcels of vineyards that are tended to with extreme attention to detail. Think backyard gardens vs. the typical sprawling vineyards. In 1989, when he purchased that initial plot of land, it was considered to be the “wrong side of the tracks” in St. Emilion. A few years later, however, Jean-Luc, proved the establishment wrong, delivering beautiful, high quality wines with intense depth. His Presidial proves Bordeaux can be enjoyed any night of the week.
