Soft and slightly sweet with notes of candied white fruits as pineapple and apricot, Clossmann Bordeaux AOC Blanc Moelleux Reserve 2013 was my favorite that night after having 10 sip servings at Bibendum Wines. And surprisingly, it’s only 380Php a bottle.
Bibendum Wines has a selection of good, everyday wines falling under the 300PhP to 600Php range for the price conscious wine fanatics.
Les Ormes De Cambras Sauvignon, 330PhP, gives out a fresh red fruit taste and spicy note, with aroma of gingerbread and jam. Best served with white meat, lamb or soft cheese.
At 450Php, The Stimson Estate Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon showcases aromas of red fruits and toast with a hint of sweet spice. This red wine is best enjoyed with meatloaf or grilled sirloin burger!
For only 550PhP, indulge in QUinta da Alorna Touriga Nacional’s violet and blackcurrant aromas and ripe tannins that give depth to the wine. Given 90 points by Wine Enthusiast, this red is best paired with red meats and cheeses.
Bibendum Wines ensures optimum storage and holding conditions by utilizing refrigirated containers and climate-controlled storage facilities. And another great thing about Bibendum Wines is that before purchasing a bottle, you can actually sample the featured wines through the enomatic machine, containing 8 different featured wines at a time. First taste is free and the succeeding tasting portions are at a minimal cost.
Bibendum Wines is located at the ground floor of MLD Building, Banilad Cebu City.
