Wine Pick of the Week
By Natalie MacLean
Château Cantelaudette J. M. Chatelier 2010
A.C., Graves de Vayres, Bordeaux, France
Generous oak on the nose that’s very attractive. Fleshy black fruit follows on the palate with more smoke and toasty oak. Full-bodied and layered. Incredible price for Bordeaux. Try it with rare steak or roast beef, grilled lamb burgers, or prime rib.
Sweetness: Extra Dry
