An Excellent Value in 2010 Bordeaux

IMG_1336Here we’ll review one of our 2010 Bordeaux bottles, in this case a Medoc wine with a fairly modest price tag.  The wine is another great example of what we always say, buy lower priced Chateaux in great Bordeaux vintages – that’s where the great values lie.  As further proof we offer the following:

Wine:  2010 Chateau de Panigon                   Winery Location:  Medoc, Bordeaux

Tasted By:     Neil & Cheri                                                 

Tasting Notes – the wine is a dark purple red.  Dark fruits and berries dominate the nose, with currant and blackberry prominent.  There is oak also, as well as a touch of earth.  On the palate the wine is full bodied, with a classic Bordeaux profile and a long finish.  The fruit is quite nice, complemented by complex flavors.  Everyone steps it up in great years.  

Price Point –    it was about $18, and it’s on wine-searcher for $15.

Would We Buy It?    at $15 this is a no brainer.  It’s a chance to get a pretty classic bottle of Bordeaux for little money.  We would definitely buy more.

Buy the great vintages, but don’t spend ridiculous money.  Words to live by.

A votre santé!
