Château d’Arcins Haut Médoc 2005 by Cru Bourgeois France
The Médoc is a region of France, well known as a wine growing region, located in the département of Gironde, on the left bank of the Gironde estuary, north of Bordeaux. Its name comes from (Pagus) Medullicus, or “country of the Medulli”, the local Celtic tribe. The region owes its economic success mainly to the production of red wine; it is home to around 1,500 vineyards.
The Château picture on the label is interesting which look like painting. The picture looks more stand out than the brand.
I have not tasted this wine yet. I keep it on my wine rack collection.
Les Fontanelles 2008 Vin de Pays d’oc France.
Vin de pays is a French term meaning “country wine”. Vins de pays are a step in the French wine classification that is above the table wine (Vin de table) classification, but below the VDQS and Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) classifications. Legislation on the Vin de pays terminology was created in 1973 and passed in 1979, allowing producers to distinguish wines that were made using grape varieties or procedures other than those required by the AOC rules, without having to use the simple and commercially non-viable table wine classification. Unlike table wines, which are only indicated as being from France, Vin de pays carries a geographic designation of origin, the producers have to submit the wine for analysis and tasting, and the wines have to be made from certain varieties or blends. Regulations regarding varieties and labelling practices are typically more lenient than the regulations for AOC wines. In 2009, the Vin de pays classification was replaced by the new PGI – Indication Géographique Protégée, or Protected Geographical Region – designation.
The landscape picture on the label is interesting. I think this is the uniqueness of the French wine label. They must put the landscape picture on the label. This label is interesting and has a stopping power for customer to buy.
I have not tasted this wine yet but I like to put it on my wine rack collection.

Château Rocs de Marchand 2007 by Montagne Saint Émilion France.
From the label I can read that Montagne Saint Émilion is a vineyard in the heart region of Bordeaux. Montagne-Saint-Émilion only produces red wine, and nearly all of the grape varieties from Bordeaux can be and are used, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Côt, etc., although it is Merlot that is used most often.
Nothing special with the label. Brown and gold combination is not really eye catching. Also, the picture in the label is not standing out.
I have not tasted this wine. However the interesting information from the label at the back is this wine is suitable for Chinese Food especially roasted bebek. I think I am going to taste it soon since I like to eat roasted duck.
