The Red Bordeaux Château Grand Jean is a wine from Delices and Gourmandises’ cellar. It will go perfectly with pork or lamb.
Produced on clay-limestone soils, Château Grand Jean is suggested by Delices and Gourmandises. Blessed with unlimited sunshine, the grapes are harvested at optimum maturity. Mainly composed of Merlot, this red Bordeaux also benefits from the contributions of Cabernet Sauvignon variety with a bit of Cabernet Franc, which gives this unique blend of many local nuances.
With a nice and quite intense ruby-red color, Château Grand Jean is a supple and fruity wine with round and discreet tannins. The nose opens with notes of ripe red fruits, complemented with words flavors. It’s a long wine in mouth that reveals a lingering all curvy finish.
Benefiting from the controlled appellation of origin (or AOC in Freanch), this long-keeping wine grading 13.5 ° can be kept in the cellar from 5 to 7 years to allow it soften and reveal its bouquet. Château Grand Jean needs to be brought to room temperature (ideally at 17 ° or 18 °) before being served.
Château Grand Jean selected by Delices and Gourmandises can be enjoyed with a nice plate of charcuterie. But it’s certainly with all the lamb recipes that it will fully express its qualities: lamb stew, leg of lamb with raspberries and walnuts, lamb on fresh herb salsa or lamb cooked the Provencal way. If you’d rather eat beef, try it with a delightful steak with pickled red peppers or accompanied by a béarnaise sauce.
