2010 Bordeaux Futures: Pauillac Value Wines

With three First Growths (Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild, and Latour) and numerous other prestigious classified growth estates within its borders, Pauillac tends to be one of the pricier appellations in Bordeaux. Known for its deep gravel banks, this region produces some of the most admired and long-lived cabernet sauvignons in the world.

While bargains aren’t easy to find within this region, there are still a handful of excellent wines you can still pick up for less than $60. (Prices current as of 7/6/2011.)
