2018 Les Reges Bordeaux Rouge

Delicious, Satisfying, Bargain Bordeaux: 2018 Les Reges Bordeaux Rouge

Les Reges Bordeaux Rouge

Bordeaux doesn't always have to be huge, extracted, and oak-aged. In fact, the residents of this famed region love wines that are a bit more medium-bodied, fresher, and ready to drink with or without food on a daily basis. With the Les Reges Bordeaux, you can too!

Even better, at less than $12 and as low as $8.99, this is a total no-brainer. The British would call this a "classic claret," and we think that's 100% accurate. Famed wine writer and personality Steven Spurrier summed up the "claret style" very aptly, saying that "elegance, fragrance of bouquet, and lift were among the central tenets of a good claret."

2018 Les Reges Bordeaux Rouge -- Here's why you should buy it:

  • A classic blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this exudes a lovely perfume of red currant, dark cherry, earth, and spice.
  • It's got a bit of age on it too! With 6 years of bottle conditioning, Les Reges offers up a level of class and sophistication rarely (never) encountered at this price point.
  • Medium-bodied and fresh, with rounded tannins, it's an easy-drinker, but it's not at all a simple and fruity red wine. There's classic Bordeaux earthiness and savoriness here too!
  • It's perfect to enjoy alongside everything from steak frites and a charcuterie board to roast chicken and pork tenderloin. 
  • No food required though, the wine's ripe and fine-grained tannins make this a stellar "house wine." Stock up on this extreme value!
