Bordeaux Superior wines can be real bargains in good years. With 2003, it's worth sampling a few to get a sense for what's available. This wine is only $12 and is probably the best Bordeaux Superior this chateau has ever produced. Their earlier wines were known to be herbal and thin.
I hope this is telling of other bargain 2003 Bordeaux. The vintage is considered monumental, so the overall quality of even the inexpensive wines should be high. Raise a glass!
