Top 10 Producers of Bordeaux Blend Wines

Our favorites for #GTiBordeauxBlends

1. Grand Puy Lacoste

Since this is a list of Bordeaux-influenced blends, it is only fitting that a Bordeaux occupies this top spot. It’s fitting not only symbolically, but historically as well since all of the wines on this list and all of the wines I’ve been tasting over the past pair of weeks owe their inspiration to cool, damp Bordeaux!

Grand Puy Lacoste is far from cheap but to me it combines all of the greatest attributes of Bordeaux. It is rich, powerful, well fruited and ages spectacularly well, developing nuance and complexity with rich, yet elegant style.

    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.
