90pt $10 Bordeaux?!
Yes and No!
Yes, today's offer is a 90 point Bordeaux Blend from France. However technically Bergerac is not part of Bordeaux.
Coming from a bit further east along the Dordogne is Bergerac. The proximity to the Right Bank of Bordeaux is very close and thus the wines produced in Bergerac of course are dominated by Merlot and Cabernet Franc for the reds.
Today's wine comes from a beautiful little property that has turned out a red Bergerac that really has knocked our socks off for the price. At only $9.99 per bottle this red blend that includes some very old Malbec is impressive from the beginning. Deep fruit, good spice and really nice texture make this extreme value really stand-out.
Plus, the recent 90 point review on this wine really cements how much of a value it truly is.
This is a great everyday alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux. It delivers and won't break the bank!
