Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe Comtes Von Neipperg Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Ripe yet still savoury with plum, black currant + a whiff of cedar wood & green pepper. On the palate this has flow - ripe, juicy, very finely grained tannins, good balance between the fresh acidity and the plums. This is a lovely surprise. And this is ready to drink now, so no need to wait any longer.
It’s hard to beat decent Bordeaux with Steak Frites.
And for 14€, great value, too!

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

2017 vintage. The Côtes de Bordeaux is a fantastic playground for value seekers and this Castillon is no exception. To be honest I feel sorry for owner Patricia Aroldi that she has to sell a biodynamical wine of this quality at such a low price (4,95 euro consumer price, I kid you not!). A blend of 86% merlot and 14% cabernet franc. Bright red fruit and flowers in the nose. Good fruit concentration and ripe tannin structure with vibrant acidity and more than decent length. Very easy to drink now, but this should age well for a few years. Highly recommended. Abv. 13%. Vignobles Gabriel & co. — 10 days ago

I agree Stefan, wrong distribution channel 🤨

It just shows that it is not that easy to sell lesser known Bordeaux regions. And contrary to the image, Bordeaux produces some of the greatest values in the world.

It must be frustrating if you want to invest in making quality wine that there are price barriers linked to the place/region

Château Le Grand Moulin

Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Faint/Light fragrance of dark berries.
Drinks really well and smoothly, with delicate flavors of dark berries, jam and vanilla. Finishes really smooth and doesn’t linger on the palate.

Château Le Grand Moulin

Collection Grande Réserve Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2018 vintage. Another spectacular value from the Côtes de Bordeaux, this time from Blaye. From 79 hectares of vines on sandy gravel soils. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet sauvignon and 5% Malbec. Again I feel sorry for owner Jean François Reaud that he has to sell such a good wine at silly prices (4,95 euro consumer price!). Even at twice the price it would be great value. Subtle nose with ripe black (blueberries, cassis) and red fruits (raspberry) with a subtle floral touch. The taste is amazingly elegant, the fruit is fresh and crisp, with a good soft tannic backbone, some complexity, moderate alcohol (abv. 13%) and very good length. Extraordinary value.

Chateau La Prade Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nicolas Thienpont is a great winemaker at 3 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classés Beauséjour HDL, Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse +Grand Cru Classé Berliquet + a few estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux). This Côtes de Francs is probably the most humble in his stable, but it's a very serious wine. A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, it features a dark red colour colour with a purplish rim, a complex nose with blueberry and strawberry fruit, flowers and cocoa powder. The fruit is packed in a tight ripe tannic structure, with balancing acidity and serious length. I would recommend to give this overachiever a few years of bottle age. Abv. 14,5%. Great value at 12,90 euro. — a month ago
