  • Bordeaux wine

    Hey guys ....sorry for the random question...I know we have a few wine connoisseurs

    Looking to get a client a bottle of Bordeaux...wanted to spend approx £100 anyone recommend anything worth getting don't want to get anything crap

    Can’t help with a £100 bottle but my favourite Bordeaux is the Chateaux Talmont from ASDA for £5.50 a bottle. Very good and very cheap.
    I’ll leave the really good expensive suggestions to someone else.

      I’d go into a Berry Bros store and speak to them. Personally I don’t think you can go wrong with a St Emilion. Price range varies greatly. But for a ton you should get a very decent bottle. I Generally would spend no more than £20 and wouldn’t bother with anything less than £6-7. Try asking Robustoclubhavana, I think that’s his handle, he’s fairly knowledgeable on the wine and spirits front.

        Are you looking for something that's ready to drink or are you looking for a good bottle that might need some cellar time?

          Prices vary wildly depending on vintage.

          Leoville Barton, any Bordeaux fan will love this. Probably needs at least another 5 years before it is drinking well though.


          If you want to go a bit older the 2009 or 10 vintages were considered exceptional, wine society have Chateau Batailley 2010 for £50. That is a good price if you are a member.

              It was a gift...so was hoping for something they could enjoy sooner rather than later

                    A pomerol would be a good choice

                      For 100£ you can get almost any very good claret (as it is called) even some with a few years on them.
                      I’d definitely go for a St. Julien wine, they’re the most approachable wines with no fuzz, just very good Cabernet Sauvignon. You should be able to pick up a Ch. Talbot or even one of the Leoville trio of which Las Cases is the top notch.
                      Pomerol will bring you into a messy territory with a maze of boutique and expensive stuff, so I wouldn’t go there. Just my 2 pence.
