Our selection has all the pedigree that can be mustered from the most heralded wine area in the world, Bordeaux. It is a huge place, broken up by small villages in varying degrees of stature. Les Clefs is in Margaux, arguably the best appellation there. Typically Margaux is exciting, extraordinary and expensive. Nothing really comes close.
Wine has been heralded from this village for 2,000 years. The land - the soil - is passed down from generation to generation. Today, it is owned by the Lurton Family, whose history goes back 200 years or so. They are one of the premier producers of Bordeaux, with properties and brands in all of the best areas.
Their heritage began in Bordeaux, but the current crop of Lurton wines have expanded well beyond those borders into California, Chile, Argentina and the like. They currently produce over 500,000 cases of wine from all over the world.
The hallowed ground of Margaux houses several of the greatest wines in the world. The wines are more approachable on release, but can last for decades.
Les Clefs is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The flavors are an amalgam of slightly charred black fruits, like plum and cherry, mixed with an almost sweet vanilla component, licorice, leather and earth. These flavors are all held in check by the smooth, silky tannins that envelop your palate and etch into your memory.
