5. Château Boyd Cantenac

Sometimes you want to experiment. Other times you want something familiar, something easy, and something more sensual than hedonistic. For me that sometimes means Boyd Cantenac.

This is not your typical modern Bordeaux. Instead, it is a divisive wine that many people see as rustic, increasingly so perhaps as the world is moving away from this style of winemaking. To me, that rusticity is textural detail and in a sea of smooth, opulent Bordeaux Boyd Cantenac remains a little tough and austere, though cloaked in rich berry fruit, and that is what I look for in my Bordeaux!

    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.
