I have tasted hundreds of Bordelaise wines over the past 6-months and have found a multitude of great values.
This collection of Bordeaux wines that not only offer amazing value, but will have broad appeal to folks who tend to find "new world" wines more compelling.
These are all still classically Bordeaux, but they have a more open-knit structure and riper fruit due to the fantastic vintages the region saw in both 2018 and 2019. All are all drinking great already and will cellar nicely over the next 4-10 years but there is no reason to wait.
2019 Diagonale D'Arsac AOC Margaux - Rich and ripe yet super-fresh bouquet offers huge complexity and dimension with fruit, mineral, earth and wood in equal measure. Pungent and savory with deep red and black fruits lifted on gobs of toasty french oak. This is the modern, new world style melded beautifully with classic BDX...densely concentrated yet super sexy on the palate with real freshness and verve playing over the robust tannins the net effect of which is excellent dimension and complexity and true elegance. 91-points Wine Enthusiast - This fine estate at the west of the Margaux appellation has produced an, elegant second wine. It is juicy with a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Black currant fruits give the wine a youthful character. Drink from 2025.
