Staff Pick Notes

Looking for a great, well-priced Bordeaux in a sea of bottles is a daunting task for even the experienced. Le Bordeaux des Dauzac, even with its less-than-exciting yellow label, makes a quality wine worth well more than the asking price. Dark fruit of cassis and blackberries fills the glass with fresh and ripe aromas. Slight wintergreen, cedar, and tobacco introduce a long and complex finish. At this price point and with this wine's firm tannins and fresh acidity, it's worth it to pick up a case and see how this wine develops in the years to come. Perfect complement to a bistro meal of steak frites with bordelaise sauce.

It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
