2009 Chateau Larteau Bordeaux Superieur

This wine is made with 100% Merlot in a very enjoyable expression of the grape. It is soft and light and delicate in the mouth. You have flavors of jam and cherry with a slight sweetness on the dry finish. This wine is drinkable today but if you want to age it a while it will only get better. This a value at $9.99 at your FO Costco and is a Bordeaux that should be in your cellar.

Cheers!!

 

Chateau Peynaud-Bagnac 2012 Bordeaux $5.99

Normally my comment would be “a $6 Bordeaux is a $6 Bordeaux” …… however there are exceptions to every rule! Costco FO has the 2012 Chateau Peynaud-Blagnac on sale for $5.99 per 750ml bottle and this a value. This Bordeaux obliviously is not a 1982 Chateau Rothschild ….. but at this price it’s something worth having in your cellar. This is a smooth, wood-aged wine with aromas of ripe black fruits with a contrast of toast and spice. It’s juicy with just the right amount of tannins. This wine is ready to drink but could be aged for several years. This wine has a Best Buy rating of 89. This wine normally sells in the $10 range!! Cheers!!!!
