Top Bordeaux Wine

My wine reviews include Bordeaux wines with high scores for their superb quality and taste, and their prices often reflect this as they tend to be more expensive. These Bordeaux wines achieve a score of 90 points or higher out of 100 and are often the wines that have the greatest aging ability and are therefore great Bordeaux wines for your cellar. They are also often the top ranked wines on many lists, especially in fine restaurants, with ratings that reflect their craftsmanship. You'll also find my reviews of Bordeaux wines that are less expensive, but still represent great value. This is just a small set of my wine reviews: when you join my wine community, you can access all of my reviews.

Château De Fonbel Merlot Blend 2006

Château St. Georges Merlot Cabernet Blend 2005
A.C., Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, France
Vintages Wine Panel: Château St. Georges sits in the Libournais satellite of St-Georges-St-Émilion. The château itself was built in 1774 on the former site of a feudal castle, and its vineyards are some of the oldest in France. Known for its consistent high quality, this cuvée combines glorious fruit aromas such as cherry and plum with fine tannins and precise acid crispness. This beautifully balanced wine is a fine candidate for cellaring 2 to 5 years, or enjoy it tonight with roast beef and root vegetables. My note: A lovely weave of dark fruit and smoke: balanced, elegant and long. A profusion of dark berries on the nose and the mid-palate is rich and satisfying. Yum! Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $34.95 Score: 90/100

Château Courrèges Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Malbec 2005
A.C., Premières Côtes De Bordeaux, France
Vintages Wine Panel: A fine, value-priced house that generally makes its wines with a blend of 50+% Merlot with support from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It's now common knowledge that producers great and little-known produced exceptional wines in 2005. Here's a chance to try something special from one of the lesser-known producers. My note: Classic Bordeaux aromas of cassis and blackberry in this incredibly well priced wine. Terrific vintage. Nice harmony and complexity. One to drink now or to cellar, your choice. Decant for 1-2 hours. Alcohol: 14%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2009‐2016  Price: $24.95 Score: 90/100

Château Beaumont Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2005
A.C., Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Lovely balance and complexity here with aromas of blackcurrant and blackberries. Some dark spices and mocha-smoke. A long finish. Terrific quality for the money. Alcohol: 14%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2010‐2016  Price: $25.00 Score: 90/100
