Ch Pericou Bordeaux 2010 Ch Pericou Bordeaux 2010

If you liked the 2006 Pericou, then the 2010 will take your breath away.  From one of Bordeaux's greatest modern vintages, the 2010 Pericou delivers all the complexity and classic Bordeaux character of the 2006 with more freshness and power.  Ripe blackcurrant and berry fruit are framed by notes of cedar and crushed herb and supported by juicy acids and silky smooth tannins.  Delicious right now and for 5-8 years.

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2015 Product #30677 (In Stock)

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Product #28783 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Rouge 2012

We’re not sure why this very classic red Bordeaux isn’t a lot more expensive.  Unlike most “value” Bordeaux, it’s based the region’s best, most aristocratic grape, Cabernet Sauvignon.  The one-third Merlot adds volume and plumpness and the time part of the wine spends in new French oak barrels – a rarity in value Bordeaux – gives polish, spice, and added complexity.

The aromas here scream "Bordeaux" with dark black currant, milk chocolate, cedar and tobacco notes and chocolate covered cherries all intermingling nicely.  The aromas suggest a rich, luscious, wine and that’s just what you’ll find when you taste it, too.  Red and black currant and tangy cherry fruit flavors make up the wine’s core with bitter chocolate (unlike the milkier chocolate on the nose), cocoa powder accents, cedar and crushed herb accents lending complexity and interest.  Even though the texture is rich and full, the wine retains Bordeaux’s classic appetizing dryness and aristocratic restraint, with fine, crisp, tannins lying underneath the lingering savory soy and smoke flavors.  Performs like a $20 wine, which makes this price even more attractive!

Ch Guirauton Graves Blanc 2014 Product #29646 (In Stock)
Ch Guirauton Graves Blanc 2014 Ch Guirauton Graves Blanc 2014

A traditional blend of about 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon that sees little or no oak.  Nicely complex aromas of fresh green grass, lemon and orange citrus, with a hint of wet wool - the classic smell of Semillon.  Clean and fresh and very brisk on the palate with the juicy fruit taking center stage up front and then loads of citrus and a bright mineral note emerging on the back.

Claar Cabernet - Merlot Columbia Valley 2013 Claar Cabernet - Merlot Columbia Valley 2013

If you love Bordeaux class and style matched by West Coast fruit, then do not miss the exceptional value.  Rich spice, blackcurrant, raspberry, cassis and toasty oak scent shine.  The texture is sophisticated and refined but the flavors big (plum, blackberry, cassis, spice, chocolate and more!) and luxurious and the finish long and fine-grained.  Tastes like $30, costs a lot less.

Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2012 Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2012

Another fine value vintage from this long-time favorite.

"This well-known Bordeaux Superieur, which has a fabulous reputation for aging 20-30 years in certain vintages, comes from proprietor Xavier Milhad. The 2012, a blend of 78% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, has a dense ruby/plum color and attractive, juicy blackcurrant fruit. Supple, round and generous, this is an over-achiever and a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 5-10 years, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it lasts longer."Wine Advocate 87 points

Les Hauts De Trintaudon Haut - Medoc 2010 Les Hauts De Trintaudon Haut - Medoc 2010

The second wine of Haut Medoc's Larose Trintaudon is second to none when it comes to value in the great 2010 harvest. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot smells great - ripe raspberry, cassis, black currant, smoke and cigar tobacco.  Then it's lush and plush on the palate before the Bordeaux structure comes up nicely.  Loads of ripe fruit flavors with clear notes of Bordeaux cedar, tobacco, smoke, and more. Delicious now - 2020.

Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010 Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010

Someday, all the little Bordeaux from the great 2010 harvest will be gone, but until then, the values remain superb.  Here's another, based on 40% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.  The Verdot really shows her in notes of candied violet and rich chocolate while the Cabernets add cedar, tobacco, currant, and dark cherry notes.  Finishes firm with spice, cedar and currant lingering.  Delicious right now and will improve for another 5 years or so.

Ch La Rame Bordeaux Rouge 2012 Ch La Rame Bordeaux Rouge 2012

A friendly, well-priced, Bordeaux that tastes and feels just exactly like a good Bordeaux should.  Roughly equal parts Cabernet Suavignon and Merlot from sandy soils near the Garonde river, this delivers attractive, middle-weight, flavors of black currant, cedar, and fresh herb with the fruit gaining strength over the fine, firm, finish.  A natural with lamb or any other herby, earthy, fare.

Clos Des Lunes Lune Blanche Bordeaux Blanc 2014 Product #30744 (In Stock)

No oak but plenty of class in this sizzling white Bordeaux value.  Plenty of lime, mint, stone, lemon zest and more on the nose and palate and a fine, crisp, clean, finish. A touch of ginger adds interest.

"Restrained, with modest peach and lemon curd notes, laced with a hint of thyme. The fresh finish features a light twinge of lemon zest. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc."Wine Spectator 89-91 points

Ch Yon Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2010 Ch Yon Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2010

Another outstanding 2010 Bordeaux, this time a Grand Cru from the Right Bank village of Saint-Emilion.  It's a blend of 88% Merlot plus Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon aged for a bit more than a year in French oak (some new). It's a stylish wine, with loads of plummy black fruit accented by notes of chocolate and spice.  Finely textured with smooth tannins, it's delicious now and over the next 5 years.

Slo Down Stand Out Red 2012 Slo Down Stand Out Red 2012

Technically this is a California "Meritage" blend of Cab and Merlot, but it's better to think of it as just a bit ole fun mouthfull of rich and juicy red wine.  It's rich and creamy-textured and loaded with dark blackberry, raspberry, and chocolate-covered cherry fruit and a big dose of toasted marshmallow.  Like the label, it's kind of brash and over the top - in a fun way.

Ch Morin Saint-Estephe 2011 Product #29492 (In Stock)
Ch Morin Saint-Estephe 2011 Ch Morin Saint-Estephe 2011

Most "value" Bordeaux carries a regional "Bordeaux" or "Medoc" label, so we were excited to find this gem from the prestigious commune of Saint-Estephe showing loads of Saint-Estephe character in the tricky 2011 vintage.   It's rich and deep, with more robust black currant fruit complementing its spice, cedar, and black olive notes.  As you'd expect from a mainly-Cabernet Sauvignon Bordeaux, there's good structure here but also lots of ripe fruit (if no overt fruitiness).  This will develop nicely over the next 5-8 years in cellar, but will also drink well now with lamb, pork chops, or beef.  Fine value.

Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2012. Product #30375 (In Stock)
Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2012. Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2012.

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids. Rock solid Sauternes aromas and flavors of apricot, toasted almond, white peach, and honey, a creamy texture, and refreshing ginger and lemon notes on the finish.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

An outstanding St. Emilion that's dead classic in every way other than price.  From 30 year-old vines of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc and aged in all neutral oak, this opens with generous scents of currant, coffee, plum, blackberry, herb and tobacco.  In the mouth, utterly delicious and full of black fruit (berry, cherry, currant) served up with a handful of dark herb.  Plump in the middle and then focused and firm on the finish, you can drink this now with lamb or beef or wait 4-8 years if you'd rather.

Jonata The Paring Red 2012 Product #30408 (In Stock)
Jonata The Paring Red 2012 Jonata The Paring Red 2012

An intense blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (24%) plus Cab Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged in barrel for 22 months. It's rich and creamy with loads of chocolate and cassis and a soft, supple, finish.

"The 2012 Red Wine is superb. Supple, radiant and expressive, the 2012 graces the palate with exquisite dark fruit, mocha, plums, spices, raspberry jam and dark spices. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this supremely delicious Cabernet Sauvignon-based red. The 2012 Red Wine is easily one of the very best values readers will find in California."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"Made by the team at Jonata, these wines are basically declassified lots that didn't make the cut for the top Jonata releases. These 2012s are a step up from past vintages and are crazy values. Don't miss a chance to grab some of these! The smokin' good 2012 Red Wine sports an inky purple color to go with full-boded, pure and layered aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, blackberries and graphite. Gorgeously pure, concentrated and structured, with the classic Jonata tannic grip, it's made with a slightly gentler extraction to be more approachable, but it will still have a decade or more of longevity. Aged in 45% new French oak, don't miss it!"Wine Advocate 91 points

Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2009 Product #30194 (In Stock)
Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2009 Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2009

A rare 2009 Bordeaux that delighted both America’s Robert Parker and Britan’s Jancis Robinson on release and has just gotten better since.  It's from 35 year-old vines growing on classic Bordeaux gravel soils just outside Pauillac and St. Julien, aged in tank (15%) and oak (85%) including about 50% new French oak.  The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure and power), 45% Merlot (for body and fruit) and 5% Petit Verdot (color, perfume), all from sustainably farmed 35 year-old vines.  Both British critic Jancis Robinson (17/20 points) and American Robert Parker (90 points, Sleeper of the Vintage") loved it on release, but it's even better now - as you'll see from James Suckling's just released review. A rich, satisfying, Bordeaux to drink right now with beef and lamb or hold through 2024.

"This is the posh sister to Larose-Trintaudon from vineyards in Arcins. Healthy crimson. Very sophisticated, swish perfume. Tastes as though an enormous amount of attention has been lavished on this wine. Top-quality oak for a start and really concentrated fruit. Lively and ripe. Great balance."  Jancis Robinson 17/20 points

“Complex aromas of blueberries, licorice and walnuts follow through to a full body, round and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very fine indeed. Drink or hold.”  James Suckling 92 points (October, 2015)

"A sleeper of the vintage and impressive is their cuvee called Larose Perganson, which in 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. It has the silkiness of its sibling, but is fuller-bodied, with more layers of fruit and glycerin and a heady finish (14.3% alcohol). It is opulent and pure, with loads of cassis, black raspberry and licorice notes backed up with some subtle oak. Drink it over the next decade."Wine Advocate 90 points
