Top 10 Producers of Bordeaux Blend Wines

Our favorites for #GTiBordeauxBlends

Top 10 Producers of Bordeaux Blend Wines As with all of my top producer lists, I’m trying to be reasonable. I’m limiting myself to a max price of $100 a bottle in this selection, though most of these wines fall far below that limit.

I’m including all the Bordeaux blends I can think of here. While it may be difficult to compare a Meritage with Bordeaux and then Bordeaux to a Taglio Bordolese or Cape Blend, I can’t put together a top 10 list of Cape Blends, so this is the road I’m taking.

One other point, I’m not a stickler when it comes to these things. If a bit of Syrah or Barbera ends up in one of my choices, please forgive me. I have a very liberal idea of what this group of wines should consist of, you might even call it antique considering what passed for Bordeaux in the past!

Without further ado, my top 10 favorite Bordeaux influenced blends. You saw what I did there, right?

    Any list that leaves off Ray Krause from Westbrrok Wine Farm is incomplete. His Fait Accompli is one of California's crown jewels. You need to find that and be as stunned as I have been - with each new release.

    Yes, I saw what you did here Gregory - no complaints from me. I'd say well done!

    Some price points would have been nice. I love the Ramey Claret. It is my "go to" wine.
