On a buying trip back in February we uncovered a lot of great value gems, but the wine we are presenting to you today, to me, was the best value wine we tasted the entire trip (and honestly one of the best wines all around).
It's been awhile since I've found something under $15.00 that checks several boxes for me:
1) Is really a food wine, but also can drink well by itself (I tested this last night!)
2) Is pleasant and complex with acidity that can excite multiple different flavor preferences (people that love light bodied wine and full bodied wine could be united here!)
3) Great packaging and a great deal
I took the below photo from our first taste of the wine with a note attached to the photo "2018 Expression - buy it all"
Sadly they would not let us buy it all, they only let us buy 250 cases. Which while it sounds like a lot, for a wine this good I even wonder if it will make it until Dec 31st. Here's to hoping!
So what is the background here?
There are around 10,000 wine brands in Bordeaux; you’ve probably not heard of most of them. In 2018, a lot of them made big, juicy wines, thanks to warmer weather, and garnered exciting scores. But a goodly number of those wines were just big and lacked complexity; the top sites were riper than most winemakers there are accustomed to handling. The so-called lesser sites were riper than they’re used to as well, but not so crazy ripe. Grand Bourdieu is planted on a mix of clay and gravel, like this part of Graves enjoys, that can handle the wet May-June-July but without holding too much water. They’ve been making wine since the 17th century and these days it’s heavy on the Merlot (70%), backed up with Cabernet Sauvignon (30%).
So if you're thinking about Holiday table wines, changing up your weeknight wines, looking for new tasty treats or just love great bottles...your ship has come in.
I continue to opine that our lineup of value right now in the store is the best that it has ever been - and the 2018 Grand Bourdieu is leading the charge!
I know what I'm drinking tonight (and I drank it last night too 😂).
