Bordeaux Without The Bloodshed | Intoxicology Report by Chris Kassel | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux |
AOC Bordeaux Supérieur (...) tend to carry higher price tags than straight-shooting Appellation Bordeaux Controlee, but in the grand scheme of this often over-priced region, not that much higher. If the ‘sweet spot’ for a balanced, drinkable, identifiably ‘characteristic’ Bordelaise wine is around $25, the following gang of five, imported by Planet Bordeaux, are all under $15.

An excellent low-end introduction to the multifarious flavors and fragrances available in the wine capital of the world.
