Who Says You Can’t Find Value Bordeaux?

During a recent twitter taste live event, I had the pleasure of tasting five value Bordeaux reds. The event was sponsored by Michael Wangbickler of Balzac Communications and Planet Bordeaux. You’ll probably recall that Marc wrote about value Bordeaux a few weeks back. It wasn’t that long ago that finding good values from this region were mediocre at best which is why I was pleasantly surprised by the quality I tasted this evening. It’s a given these wines can’t compete with the greats from this region, but considering most are at the $15 mark, they are worthy of stocking up as they make great every day drinking wines. Give them a try. I think you’ll be happy with your purchase.  Below are my notes on the five wines we tasted. À votre santé! Read the full story
