Bordeaux Values |

Yes, there still are some great values in the world of Bordeaux. These recent arrivals are all under $40. Think of Bordeaux when you are firing up the grill for burgers, or a nice juicy steak this weekend. Even though we're focused on the warm weather ahead, don't be afraid to put a few aside for a rainy (or snowy) day in the future. Many of these wines can and will improve over the next couple of years. That is, if you can keep your hands off of them!

    JD90+90–92 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - May 1, 2019
    Notes of smoked earth, plums, blackberries, and spicy wood all emerge from the 2018 Château Pierre 1Er. Medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, with both texture and elegance on the palate, drink this pure, beautiful Saint-Émilion over the coming 10–15 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

  3. Le C Des Carmes Haut-Brion

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#56931

    JS9494 pts. - - Tuesday, October 5, 2021
    This show so much effusive ripe fruit with cherries and strawberries. Lightly jammy. Full-bodied and slightly chewy, yet with so much fruit and brightness. Delicious now, but give it two or three years to open. Second wine of Carmes. Try after 2023.
    RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Apr 2019
    The 2018 Le C des Carmes Haut-Brion is blended of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. It includes 25% whole cluster, has 13.6% alcohol and is anticipated to age 18-24 months in barriques, 30% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little reduced to begin, opening out to pretty notions of roses, cinnamon stick and black pepper over a core of Black Forest cake, licorice, tar, warm cassis and chargrill. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly wound with firm, ripe, chunky tannins and lovely freshness with saline and mineral sparks coming through on the long, vibrant finish.
    VN90+90–92 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2019
    The 2018 Le C des Carmes Haut-Brion is matured in 70% one-year old oak and 30% new oak. It has an intense bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry, fig and light aromas of black olive, well defined with good intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grain tannin and good acidity. The 30% whole bunch lends the finish freshness and a slight briney note. Give this three or four years in bottle before broaching.

  4. Château Tour Saint Christophe

    Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#55578

    JS9797 pts. - - Thursday, April 22, 2021
    Currant, red-tea, chili, chocolate and lemon-zest aromas. Chalk and crushed gravel, too. It’s medium-bodied with tight, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Sleek and tight with crunchy berry, mineral and zesty notes on the finish. Complex. Pretty center palate to this. Extremely polished. Try from 2025.
    JD95+95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/11/2021
    Emerging from a beautiful, terraced vineyard on the eastern side of Saint-Emilion, the 2018 Château Tour Saint Christophe is based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in 40% new French oak. Its vivid purple color is followed by a great nose of blackcurrants, blueberries, tobacco leaf, chocolate, violets, and chocolate. Hitting the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, it has this wonderful sense of purity and elegance, a touch of chalky minerality, flawless balance, and a great finish. This beautiful, elegant, seamless Saint-Emilion needs 4–5 years of bottle age but will evolve for 20–25 years. You won’t regret having this in the cellar. (Jeb Dunnuck)
    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Tour Saint Christophe represents a new level of elegance, precision and finesse for this estate in Saint-Émilion’s Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes district. Silky and exceptionally polished, the 2018 oozes class. Moreover, the heavy extraction and strong torrefaction notes that marked previous vintages of the recent past have been replaced by beautifully precise, vibrant fruit. Tour Saint Christophe is one of best values in Saint-Émilion. I haven’t always loved Tour Saint Christoph, but I love the 2018. It’s a fabulous effort from Technical Director Jérôme Aguirre and his team. Don’t miss it.
    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Apr 2021
    A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, aged for around 18 months in oak barrels, 40% new, the 2018 Tour Saint Christophe weighs in at 14.6% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple in color, it comes barreling out of the glass with bold notions of baked black cherries, plum preserves and blueberry pie plus underlying suggestions of Christmas cake, Chinese five spice and dusty soil. The full-bodied palate packs in the black and blue fruit preserves layers, framed by velvety tannins and lively acidity, finishing long and spicy.

  5. Château Deyrem Valentin Margaux

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#55577

    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Deyrem Valentin is very perfumed on the nose, offering blackberry, blueberry, touches of violet petal and light incense aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, a silky-smooth texture and a vibrant, minerally finish that lingers. This is a gorgeous, finely tuned and precise Margaux that is going to give 20 years of drinking pleasure.
