Bordeaux, France

This wine offers the very aphrodisiac attributes of floral aromas, subtle black fruit flavors and underlying earthiness. Coupled with velvety tannins, it provides a very sensual experience. A masterfully made wine, it needs no food at all. But if you're planning it as the star of a romantic meal, try it with seared, lean game meats like venison or rabbit.

Rating: 16/20
