Le Bordeaux de La Haye 2012
Bordeaux has a cool marine coastal climate, with mild weather and no dry season. Bordeaux reds tend to be lower in alcohol and are slightly lighter in body. Stylistically, they exhibit more nuanced flavors and less up-front fruit. Sophisticated and elegant, they pair well with game meats, roast lamb, or hearty beef stews.
According to legend, this home sheltered Henri II and Diane de Poitiers as their hunting lodge. Although married to Catherine de Medici, Henry II had a special affection for Diane de Poitiers, who was his governess. Their monogram, H and D interlaced, is engraved in stone at the entrance to the Château. It is also found in the home of historical lovers in Fontainebleau, for Henri II and at Anet for Diane de Poitiers. The royal monogram has now become the symbol of Château La Haye and decorates all our labels.
