What better way to celebrate a holiday than with family, friends and good wine? None better. So with our son home for the holiday and some friends over Thursday for dessert and the Patriots game, we opened a few bottles during the four day weekend. Some were very good and represent good value.

A Value Bordeaux and a Little About the 1855 Bordeaux Classification

Bordeaux Map Annotated
