...What I discovered is that not only is Bordeaux (the city) one of the coolest and most beautiful cities I’ve traveled to with its beautiful architecture and incredible restaurants, but wines from the region are incredibly versatile. Many think of Bordeaux for its most expensive and sought after red wines — you know, the ones that can sell for thousands of dollars for a single bottle — but these wines account for less than 5% of the regions total production. The wines that don’t get much attention are the everyday great values (wines retailing between $8-$25), which account for over 80% of wines produced in the region. These are the wines I remember drinking everyday with lunch and dinners during our visit.
