Cheap Bordeaux- an oxymoron?

By Lia Sanders on 30/01/15 11:00 AM

Last week key organisations in the UK wine industry sent a plea to the wine growers of Bordeaux to beg for lower prices. As prices for the French wine continue to grow, it may seem that the idea of a ‘cheap Bordeaux’ is the biggest oxymoron you can get. Price can be subjective, but we think that you can get a top quality wine with change from a twenty. To prove it, we have rounded up the four best Bordeaux for less than £15.

Chateau Clement Pichon 2009 Haut Medoc – £15

Staunchly recommended by a whole host of experts, this wine manages to come in so cheap because Haud Medoc covers such a wide area.

Chateau La Croix Bonneau Montagne Saint Emilion 2009 – £14.16

2009 was a particularly good year for Bordeaux and, as this article says, Saint Emilion is a tag which guarantees value for money.

Chateau Parsac Ctes de Castillon Bordeaux – £12.99

One of the most popular wines from the region, the wine is decribed as ‘immensely drinkable‘.

Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton Cadet Rouge – £10.49

And of course, the ever consistent Mouton Cadet proves its ongoing international appeal by combining low prices with a quality blend of grapes.
