Today’s Bordeaux is in New York City?!

June 9, 2011 at 6:00 am

Today's Bordeaux 2010 - My regular readers know that the Enjoy Bordeaux Le Wine Buff’s took NYC by storm a couple months back, helping host the Snooth and Ziff Davis TechEnology event, back at the end of March.  It was there that we battled the East Coast urban prejudices against affordable, quality Bordeaux and taught them who’s boss.  Well the Buffs are headed back the East Coast to jury the 2011 Today’s Bordeaux: Top 45 Affordable Bordeaux Under $45 and I have to say, it’s gonna be great.  For when Bordeaux hits the Big Apple, it’s sure to be culinary and vino awesomeness!

Le Wine Buff - EnjoyBordeaux.comWith all of the news about the even higher prices for an extremely small number of über high-end Chateaux 2010 futures hitting all the news wires leading up to Vinexpo later this month, it might be surprising to hear that Bordeaux is actually one of the highest sources for affordable, high QPR wines.  Yet Bordeaux has thousands of producers and négociants across 60 sub-appellations, amounting to many, many labels of fine wine, most of which is squarely in the inexpensive realm of vino drinkin’.

It is just this plethora of value within BDX that the Today’s Bordeaux list aims to celebrate.  We Buffs will slave away, for 1.5 days straight, pouring poring through 150+ entries to bring you the top 100 affordable Bordeaux for 2011.  No, no, no, don’t thank us…it’s what we do.  Cheers! 😉

Enjoy Bordeaux
