Domaine Sorin 2013 Cotes De Provence
Nobilo 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Chateau Recougne Bordeaux 2010

One of the best value Grand Vin de Bordeaux around right now, and one of the wines regularly supplied by my local wine merchant as an entry level Bordeaux wine, costing about $13 a bottle.

This red bordeaux blend is 78% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and the heavy predominence of Merlot makes it a smooth drinking Claret that pairs well with chicken, pork and tomato based pasta dishes.  It is not quite complex enough to do justice to a decent steak - you want something more heavily skewed towards Cab Sauv for that, but for the price you can't beat this wine. The 2010 vintage is drinking very well now and as you will read on my France Wine Vintages page, 2010 was an excellent year for Bordeaux wines!  Enjoy this great value delight whilst you can.
