Become an insider of top Bordeaux châteaux!
There are cca. 3000 wineries in Bordeaux, but just 56 châteaux of them are classified in the highest categories – they represent the peak of the quality pyramid with sky-rocketing prices. But here is a trick: those prestige estates produce their second wines, which in quality fall not far behind the 100 times more expensive first wine.
Or an even better idea: look for the wines of the lower-ranked châteaux from outstanding vintages! Which one is the golden path? You can learn the answer from the presentation by Demetri Walters MW, the expert of Berry Bros. & Rudd, the most famous British fine wine merchant, in course of a tasting of great wines. 2006 Château Pichon-Longueville-Baron, Pauillac and other great wines – for only 33 euros plus!
