Bordeaux is not known for value, but zones
like the Côtes de Blaye are producing
polished, overachieving reds like this one.
What You Need To Know
Beyond Bordeaux’s famous grand
crus—the Lafites and Latours, Margauxs and Moutons—lies a vast
amount of moderately priced wine. Much of it is unremarkable
stuff churned out by large wine merchants, but bargain hunters
know to look for estate-grown wines in up-and-coming regions
such as the Côtes de Bordeaux, where Château les Renauds is
located. Like virtually all estates in the four Côtes de Bordeaux
subregions (Blaye, Cadillac, Castillon and Francs), Château les
Renauds focuses on Merlot, with Cabernet Sauvignon playing
a supporting role. The estate is owned and run by Emmanuelle
Raguenot and her family, including husband Daren Miller, an
American who fell in love with Raguenot when she interned
at a Pennsylvania winery.
Red cherry, cedar
and dried herbs.
Polished, with earthy notes of
ripe cherries and tobacco.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
