Bordeaux Fine Wine

No other region is so associated with fine wines as Bordeaux. You could almost say the Bordelais single-handedly created the very concept. Back when the 1855 Classification organised the many Chateaux according to the prices they achieved, the Bordeaux premier wine league, and lesser divisions was formed.
Those stellar names in Bordeaux attract similarly stratospheric prices. These are the 'bucket list' wines which, for many of us, will always be beyond reach. Luckily, Bordeaux's fine wines aren't all aimed at the world's billionaires. There are those that, whilst more expensive than most everyday wines, are well worth treating yourself to if only every now and again.
It's this end of the Bordeaux spectrum that we've focused upon. Looking for those wines that manage to offer the best Bordeaux wine experience but without the hefty price tag.
Primarily red fine wine territory, Bordeaux's greatest wines are based around the 'big three': Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. However, you'll find some of the planet's finest sweet wines here too, made from Semillon and/or Sauvignon Blanc, once it's been influenced by 'noble rot'.
Virtually all red Bordeaux has been designed to complement food. These aren't simple quaffing wines, they come into their own and really shine once some good food is present. Then they're capable of creating a culinary experience you'll long remember.

    1 review(s)

    Bought this wine and so pleased I did, absolutely delicious and will certainly be ordering more. If you want a wine for a special occasion this is it. Go on spoil yourself. John

    Plush, with plum and blackcurrant, it really is hugely classy and a real treat to find a 2005 of this quality at an affordable price. Tom Cannavan Read More.

  • Château Pomeys Cru Bourgeois Moulis en Médoc, 2014

    This is a smooth wine full of black fruits and with a backdrop of fine tannins. It has a rich juicy character from the black plum and berry fruits along with bright acidity. The wine, a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, will develop relatively quickly. 88 points Wine Enthusiast

    Cherry and plum-cake nose, then a rich palate with rather fine tannins and a long finish. Drink or hold. 90 points James Suckling Read More.

  • Château Peyredon Lagravette Cru Bourgeois Haut Médoc, 2015

    Good cassis character from the dominant Cabernet; lots of personality and a firm finish. 88 points Steven Spurrier, Decanter

    This elegant wine is rich, with lightly structured black fruits that reveal the generosity of the vintage and also the ageing potential. Powered by the juicy black-currant fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a wine to age. 90 points Wine Enthusiast Read More.
