La Fleur Anne Union De Producteurs De Saint-Émilion Merlot Blend 2005
A.C., Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, France
Vintages Wine Panel: A fine representation of the 2005 Bordeaux vintage. Loads of flavour, ably balanced by a streak of tannin and acidity. Look for spice, cherry, cassis, plum and tobacco notes. Dry with good fruit surrounded by firm tannins (cellar it 3-5 years). A good wine to start a cellar with. My note: A pleasant Bordeaux that has some attractive blackberry and cassis notes, some smoke and good depth. Full-bodied and tannic: decant for 1-2 hours. While it doesn’t have the complexity of the finer Bordeaux, it also doesn’t have the price tag. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $19.95 Score: 87/100

Château Argadens Supérieur 2009
Bordeaux A.C., France
Classic band-aid on the nose (a good thing), black fruit, smoke and tar. Tannic, but nothing that decanting 1-2 hours can't help. An incredibly great price for Bordeaux. Alcohol: 13%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2014‐2019  Best Beef Wine  Best Value Red Wine  Price: $17.95 Score: 89/100

Château Lafon Cuvée Classic Theron-Listrac, Récolt. 2006
A.C., Listrac, Bordeaux, France
Vintages Wine Panel: From the lesser-known region of Listrac, this wine offers great value and a depth of aromas including cassis, plum, leather, spice and berry. The palate is dry, medium bodied and balanced with medium acidity, herbal notes, and accents of earth and cedar. The finish is crisp and very satisfying. Cellar this for another 2-3 years, or enjoy it tonight. My note: A rustic, acidic wine with pleasing cedar and black wild cherry notes. Medium- to full-bodied and smooth. Food pairings: veal,lamb chops. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2011‐2013  Price: $16.95 Score: 87/100
