Great Bordeaux for under fifty bucks? It can be done and this blend of 80% merlot, 15% cabernet franc and 5% malbec proves it. Pour it into a large glass and swirl it vigourously or decant it if you can. That’ll inject a whoomph of oxygen into the wine, accelerating the aromatics and plumping out the palate. I love the deep berry, leather, liquorice and cocoa flavours of this lovely complex, spicy, cockle-warming wine.
Sip with: Daube of beef.
