Two outstanding reds go head-to-head in this delicious showcase of dazzling French reds. Will the silky, supple Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois reign supreme? It is one of France’s most legendary appellations after all! Or will Jean-Marc Sauboua’s amazing rule-breaking blend (which combines fruit from several legendary appellations into one luscious mouthful) triumph?

To be honest, both wines are superb, and it will be a very (very!) close call as to which one will come out on top. We just want to show you how convention-defying French reds can wow just as much as the top appellation stars. And at just $139 a bottle, one thing is guaranteed – the biggest winner is YOU!

The Traditionalist Champion
Château d'Aurilhac Cru Bourgeois 2011

Haut-Médoc AOC, France

A lavish Bordeaux from the hallowed Médoc region, “the most famous red wine district in Bordeaux, and possibly the world” (Jancis Robinson). Château d’Aurilhac is tucked away in Saint Seurin de Cadourne, just beyond Saint Estèphe. Its near neighbour is the renowned Château Sociando Mallet. Now 10 years old, this beautifully silky wine shows a gorgeous array of mature fruit and spice and is beautifully mellow and complex. Decant carefully and sip with your finest roast meats.

The Rule-Breaking Challenger
La Part du Boucher NV

Vin de France, France

Jean-Marc Sauboua first made this unique wine for his team with small amounts of top-class wines left at the end of bottling as a treat to enjoy with steak after late nights working. The result was SO good that we had to have it for our customers as well – even though we can’t put those prestige appellations on the bottle! It’s a magnificent blend of … well, we don’t know exactly what. There’s some Pomerol, some Pauillac perhaps, and some Saint Émilion rubbing shoulders with other stars from the southwest. It's a big, warming red that will really impress – especially with steak and chips.

Who will win? You decide!

Take them both together in one sensational dozen for just $1,668 and see which one you think should win the title for finest French red. It’s a challenge you’ll love to take on!
