From Lussac-Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux wine region, Château des Landes 2016 is a full-bodied 100% Old Vines Merlot Cuvée Prestige aged 16 months in new French oak. Rich with ripe cassis, blueberry, earthy violets, sweet baking spice, mocha and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. Absolutely stunning. Pour with a bacon-wrapped filet mignon.

Food pairings: tourtière, roast beef, turkey.
