If you haven't experienced 2010 Bordeaux, your opportunity is here. The clay and gravel soils of Ch. Grand Francais create a Bordeaux that is not St. Emilion Grand Cru, but drinks like one. This award winning Bordeaux Supérieur has been called an “almost perfect wine” and took home the Grand Gold Medal at the Lyon contest in 2013. It has the bones for ageing, but it’s approachable right now. 

About the wine

Hailed as one of the greatest vintages EVER in Bordeaux, this is a wine to stockpile. This bright, cherry red wine opens with woody nuances and fresh cedar on the nose, followed by dry herbs, plum, hints of vanilla, and caramel. On the palate it’s soft and voluminous with ashen tannins that create a fresh and chiseled finish. Most of the wines from this stellar vintage were snapped up years ago, here is a last call on a top shelf wine at a screaming price.

Reviews

4.0 ★ - Vivino Users

"As the wine opens it express more and more . Very enjoyable for this price point." - Brad F.

"A nice Bordeaux for the money. Needs decanting for hours to fully open" - Jim N.

"Wonderful! Beautiful, full, layered Bordeaux." Bonnie G.

94 points - Ryan Zeman, Wine Director Civico San Diego

"I’ve just found my new house wine. Dark and brooding with plenty of life and a long runway to full maturity. Great fruit and smoothe tannins, but also the secondary herbal and dried fruits that a Bordeaux lover relishes. I’ve haven’t seen a 2010 like this, with this much depth, expression, authenticity and quality at this price in a long time. Drinking quality and value in Bordeaux is a treat. This wine has it all. The fact that it is certified organic is a bonus."

Grand Francais may be labelled “Bordeaux Superieur,” but it drinks like a Grand Cru! From the stellar 2010 vintage, it mixes the earthy tones of better than great Bordeaux with minerality in a wine that’s delightful today, but will age into a mast

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
