Château L’Affordable de Bordeaux

It is hard not to like affordable Bordeaux.  Here are a few that have recently come into the shop.

2020 De Fontenille Entre Deux Mers  $15
50% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Sauvignon Gris, 20% Muscadelle, 10% Semillon
A lot more than straight up Sauv Blanc, the Fontenille has enticing aromas of citrus fruit and white peaches, Château de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers displays wonderful acidity and freshness on the palate coupled with exotic fruit and citrus flavors.

2019 Château Cleyrac Bordeaux Supérieur  $10
10 buck Bordeaux.  A juicy, fruity red with currant and floral character. Medium body. Easy finish.  Mystery cepage.

2016 Moulin de Lagut Bordeaux  $13
65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
Ripe, fresh fruit on the nose, expressive oak with vanilla and toasty notes. Full, round, powerful and aromatic on the palate. An authentic Bordeaux.

2016 Château Briot Bordeaux  $14
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
From an estate in Entre-Deux-Mers, the Briot shows  pleasant red berry aromas, with a hint of fresh walnut and toasted vanilla.  It is well-rounded and  fruit  driven,  with  an  elegant,  soft  tannic structure and good length.

2014 Dumas Cenot Bordeaux Superieur  $15
Merlot – Cabernet Franc – Cabernet Sauvignon
A good little Bordeaux in an odd bottle and a wooden box.  Expressive smell of matured black fruits, supple tannins with a ripe fruit finish.
