The Instacart guide to Bordeaux blend

About Bordeaux blend

Bordeaux blends refer to wines made from grapes that are grown in the region of Bordeaux, France. Ninety percent of Bordeaux wines are red, while the other 5% are of a white variety. The primary flavors of red Bordeaux wines include black currant, plum, graphite, cedar, and violet. They include blends such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Merlot, to name a few. White Bordeaux wines are described as zippy and fresh or creamy with lemon tones and include blends such as Sauternais, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sémillon.

Red Bordeaux wines are medium- to full-bodied wines that are high in tannins. These tannins aid in the aging process of Bordeaux blends, even if they're left to store for several decades. The flavors of red Bordeaux range from tart and sour to sweet and fragrant, depending on the grape quality, the bottle's vintage, and the region in which the grapes are grown.

FAQs About Bordeaux Blend

Bordeaux blends are best when served slightly below room temperature. Consider placing it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before serving. You can place it in an ice bucket right before guests arrive as well. Once the wine is slightly chilled, decant it and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Decanting is simply the process of pouring wine from the bottle into a different container to remove sediment from the wine. 

Food that is high in fat and meaty in flavor pairs very well with Bordeaux blends. The tannins and fruity aromas in these wines help smooth out and balance these flavors well. Other foods that are perfect companions to a bottle of Bordeaux include the following:
  • Meat: Black pepper steak, filet mignon, beef brisket, chicken liver, pot roast, duck, goose, venison, buffalo burgers, and dark turkey meat.
