Top Value Bordeaux Tasted 1/14

8. Les Amorelles Coteaux de Peyriac (2012)

« Prev 8 of 8
Previously available for $6.00
60% Merlot/ 40% Cabernet Sauvignon Decidedly fruity on the nose with jammy overtones to the plum and blueberry fruit that is wrapped up in licorice, caramel and violet aromas. Plump, round and juicy in the mouth this offers up attractive flavors of spicy black fruits famed with subtle vegetal notes. There’s something about this, both on the nose and in the mouth that reminds of Syrah. The edgy blue fruit and blend of floral and spice accents. Fairly rich, impressively so at the price, this is a lovely table wine, just a touch rustic, with a hint of sweetness, and a modest. astringent finish. It’s hearty and ready for anything. Quite the value. 81pts

  • 490679PMinns Living in France and fairly familiar with Bordeaux wines, I have not encountered any of the above, let alone tasted them...but will look out for them in the future! My personal favourites for many years come from the MILHADE winegrowing estate in Libourne. They have consistently good Bordeaux Supérieur ( Château Recougne and Château Tour d'Auron) a Lussac St. Emilion (Château Lyonnat) and a Lalande de Pomerol (Château Sergant). All reasonably priced at between €8 and €11. 2009 was an excellent year for all these and 2010 is shaping up well. I have seen them on sale in Asia (Seoul) but not yet in the U.S.
