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.
