Chateau Moulin de la Roquille Bordeaux Cotes de Francs is a top-grade right-bank red Bordeaux made of 70% Merlot and 15% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged 12-18 months in French oak. What's especially interesting about this new wine gem is its innovative packaging. It comes in an adorable wooden box made of Bordelais oak and it holds 3 liters of wine-the equivalent of 4 standard 750ml bottles. Perfect for parties and summer picnics because it's so lightweight and durable-and amazingly compact! It's also a great everyday house wine, and you don't need to worry about 3 liters of wine going bad. Once the tap is opened the wine will last for six weeks in its airtight bag inside the box! What's not to like? Just remember that all boxed wines are meant to be consumed within 12 months, so drink up!
Chateau Moulin de la Roquille Bordeaux Cotes de Francs is soft ruby red in color with aromas of berries, plums, vanilla and spice. Medium in body with moderate acidity and silky tannins, this Bordeaux offers rich flavors of plums, blackberries, cassis, vanilla and spice. Nicely balanced, it is smooth and pleasing on the finish.
Enjoy Chateau Moulin de la Roquille Bordeaux Cotes de Francs with roast duck, burgers, roast beef sandwiches, ratatouille, and cheeses.
Opening instructions: Place the Wineberry Box upside down and slide open the bottom wood panel. Remove tape covering hole in front panel and push spigot through the hole with tap facing toward bottom of box. Slide bottom panel closed and turn box upright. When ready to open, simply remove plastic seal from spigot. Place wine glass under spigot and lift up on two side buttons of tap to dispense wine. Swirl and enjoy!
Recycling suggestion: Wineberry boxes are a nearly perfect fireplace fire starter! Just stuff 2-3 pages of wadded newspaper into a box with the bottom panel removed, stack it on its side on the andirons and light through the hole with a match. It sustains a beautiful fire for 10 minutes or more as you add logs on top!
