A LITTLE CAB’LL DO YA
The wines from Bordeaux are steeped in tradition, quality and romance. Almost 2 centuries ago a group of people looked out across the Gironde Estuary at what most would consider as nothing but a marshy wasteland. But those whose blood ran thick with generations of winemaking knew that if tamed this land could produce fine wine….one could hardly guess that they knew it would soon become the world’s finest region bar none.
The wild Pine forests that create the western edge of the wine growing region act as a barrier from the harsh Atlantic ocean winds, while the rivers forming the eastern borders ensure a calm, template climate- neither too hot nor too cold. In Autumn’s golden sunlight, these perfectly situated vineyards are harvested for their purple gold – the noble grapes that produce some of the world’s most revered wines. Les Champs d’Or celebrates this heritage of quality in the form of a luscious, sumptuous, dynamic Cabernet, grown in Bordeaux with inimitable French pride.
The Champs d’Or team is quality-conscious at every step of the winemaking process, making sure to process each grape bunch with utmost care. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit is destemmed and fermented in state-of-the-art stainless steel tanks. The wine is allowed to mature gracefully and blended before bottling.
