Château Gontey Grand Cru 2010

Chateau-GonteyDave McIntyre, writing in the Washington Post, recommended a number of affordable Bordeauxs this week including this  Château Gontey Grand Cru from Saint-Émilion which he rated “exceptional.”

He said: “I couldn’t resist throwing in a Grand Cru from Saint-Émilion, on the right bank, as well as a Sancerre, for a white wine change of pace.

“This heady Merlot, with 20 percent Cabernet Franc, is available primarily in restaurants, but it’s also worth finding for a special dinner at home or even for your cellar. It is rich, dark and brooding at first, but after an hour or so it comes alive with intense cherry fruit. (I suggest decanting). It’s modern in style; the extract and soft tannins grab your palate and hold on.”

Price: $38
