We are quite excited to introduce the Chateau de Cazenove Grand Vin de Bordeaux that has a unique connection to the United States.  The very first vintage of this fine French Bordeaux was introduced in 1991 and was served as official wine of the bicentenary of the founding of Cazenovia Village in Upstate New York. In mid-1700, Théophile de Cazenove-van Jever, a direct ancestor of the Cazenove owner of the winery at Macau en Médoc, immigrated to North America as general agent for the Holland Land Company, based in Philadelphia. He founded several settlements, named Cazenovia, in Upstate New York and in Pennsylvania and became an American citizen in 1794. In 1871, in Boston, MA, a street and a place were named after him. His portrait by St Menin hangs at the Corcoran Gallery, in Washington D.C.

Chateau de Cazenove Grand Vin de Bordeaux

The Cazenove Bordeaux Supérieur begins with a glittering deep red hue due to excellent ripeness of the grapes. The bouquet offers black cherry jam, blackcurrant cream which leads to a generous and balanced vintage, ample and long in the mouth.  The Chateau de Cazenove pairs well with red meat, steak, roast beef and lamb, making it a perfect accompaniment to your holiday meal or when serving appetizers of brie and camembert.

Suggested Retail $21.99 – Suggested Aging 15-20 years
