Drink Review: Patron Gran Burdeos Tequila

Gran Patron Burdeos Anejo Tequila is distilled from the finest blue Agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The Tequila is matured in a blend of American and French oak barrels and aged for a minimum of 12 months. It is then distilled again before it is racked in vintage Bordeaux barrels, hand-selected from the great chateaux of France to add the distinctive flavors of vanilla, raisins and dried fruit found in the finest Bordeaux wine.

Patron Gran Burdeos Tequila Review:

Color: Rich amber color.

Patron Gran Burdeos Tequila Taste: A medium initial taste with oak and vanilla, but fading quickly.

Body: Medium-bodied with a nice syrupy mouth-feeling.

Finish: A dry finish with pleasant oak, spice and fruit.

Pop/Fizz: Slightly but surprise.

The aforementioned Patron Burdeos Tequila is a fine sipping and savoring Tequila that manages to capture the essence of France in a bottle. This is no coincidence as Patron Burdeos Tequila is the brainchild of Patron Tequila, which is a brainchild of a French family that has been making Téquila for 40 years. What you find in Patron Burdeos Tequila is precisely what you will find in the finest of Bordeaux wines.

How Does It Smell?

Aromas:
The nose of this Tequila presents a rich, mellow and inviting scent. The scent is toasted oak with vanilla, fruit, and spice. The spice is a little bit of peppery bite and the fruit is a delicious soft raisin.

The aroma is at first a little bit sharp and edgy, but if you breathe it in a little bit more, it becomes this delicious vanilla and oak smell with peppery raisin and a slight spice that adds to the aroma profile.

Taste:
The taste is a uniform of the tastes noted above. The nose and sightly jagged bursts of flavor transform into smooth, rich flavors that slide across the palate. The flavors are rich, clean, salty oak, raisin, vanilla and spicy heat.

There is a slight spiciness to Patron Burdeos that keeps the flavor palate from becoming a one-trick-pony, but the one-trick-pony is about as fine a trick as this Tequila gets.

Smoothness:
The Patron Burdeos is super smooth. There is no burn this Tequila has a very nice, soft, almost syrupy feeling on the palate which keeps the ingredients from coming on-and-off too quickly.

For those who love flavor and Tequila this Patron Burdeos tequila won’t fail to please. The wine-barrel fermentation of the Patron Burdeos Tequila lends itself to a rich, smooth, sweet, fruity flavor that lingers on and on like the tastiest, smoothest of wines.

Patron Burdeos Tequila offers sensations of vanilla, oak, spice, and raisins, all of which pair nicely with spicy black beans for a great taste experience. We found the Tequila to make a great Mojito that was so delicious it had us looking up the Patron website to see what to with the other 750ml bottle we had.

The Patron Burdeos’s oak and raisin flavors pair nicely with slightly sweet, but bold food, such as poke, sashimi, and ceviche. Like the spicy black beans, the rich flavor of the Tequila and the mild seafood will take care of your taste buds.

Patron Burdeos Tequila could send you down a rabbit hole of experimentation that will have you looking for ways to use it up before the bottle is empty. It works well on the rocks and it even works well diluted with water or fruit juice. We recommend simple syrup because it provides the Tequila with a clever way to mix different flavors together.

Note: The Patron Burdeos Tequila is 80 proof / 40% abv.

Drinkability:
Patron Burdeos is a drinkable Tequila and is as smooth as can be. It is not as sweet as other Tequilas, but it is still a nice flavor and it is exceptionally smooth.
