The Best of Bordeaux offer [Mar 18]



This just landed amid Rhone EP anticipation and Burgundy EP conundrum. I can see some appetising wines at all price levels. Might get a bottle or two… there is definitely a near Bordeaux sized gap in my wine experience.


Ah good spot! I have definitely been neglecting claret over the last few months for one reason or another. Here is the way back in. Some of the mature wines look like great value.


Thank you for the heads up. If my Rhone EP doesn’t come good, this migt be just the thing to cheer me up!


I’ve just had a little scan down this list. In the last few years i’ve been allocated the Rauzan-Segla and the Brane-Cantenac in my vintage cellar plan. Both £15/bottle cheaper than on this list.

Again a huge plus for the VCP, as i assume this sort of thing happens a lot.

The downside being, someone else is allocating it for you, which i don’t mind, but people who derive the pleasure from selecting themselves may not like this system quite so much.
