2010 Bordeaux Futures: Saint-Estephe Value Wines

2010 Bordeaux Futures: Saint-Estephe Value Wines

If you followed last week’s 2010 Bordeaux Futures price releases, you may be inclined to think that all Bordeaux is over-the-top expensive. Over the next few days, we’ll post some of the best value-for-money wines in each appellation.

Today, we’ll tackle Saint Estephe, situated at the top of the Left Bank. Roger Bohmrich makes a number of recommendations in his video (posted above), including Cos d’Estournel, Lafon-Rochet, and Les Ormes de Pez. Here are a few more Saint-Estephe wines priced in the $20-60 range. (Prices current as of 7/5/2011.)
