So, I’ve been grilling a lot and don’t always want to open something expensive or Italian to go with my steaks. I had never really explored her high qpr Bordeaux before. I knew I like Poujeaux, and that had just been my go-to. But, with the 2016 vintage still available and generally, at the lower price points, ready to drink with a 2 hour decant, I’ve done some exploring and have been somewhat shocked by the quality of a few of the wines I’ve had. Wines that are far more to my liking than almost anything you could get from CA in their price ranges. A few 2016s that have impressed me this spring/summer:

Poujeaux (as mentioned) (Moulis)

Labegorce (Margaux)

Tronquoy-Lalande (St-Estephe)

Lafon-Rochet (St-Estephe)

and also

2010 Chateau Olivier Rouge (Pessac-Leognan)

2015 Poesia (St-Emilion)

2019 Meyney (St-Estephe)

I bought all of these for between $30 and $45. I’d love to read others’ experiences with good qpr Bordeaux, as well!
