Philippe Raguenot Cotes de Bordeaux 2010 is a red blend containing Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%).
This is a traditional Bordeaux-style red blend that is medium-bodied with rather thick blackberry fruit and hints of spice and currant. The wine has medium tannins and finishes dry. I had expected a little more from this Bordeaux wine, but it’s still a good wine. Will work best with food (meat dishes).
Produced by: Raguenot-Lallez-Miller, France.

Chateau Panchille Bordeaux 2009 is a great value wine, with a nice layered character of fresh berry fruits combined with a nice nose of chocolate and vanilla. Nicely balanced, dry Bordeaux blend with long finish that will go very well with a nice piece of French cheese or chocolate in front of the fireplace or out in the yard during summertime.
The wine is a blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%), derived from 30-years old vines and aged in stainless steel vats for 18 months.
The vineyard Château Panchille is a small estate consisting of diverse “terroirs“. Wine maker Pascal Sirat has made this choice to obtain a larger palette of aromas and structure. This allows him, at blending time, to obtain a wider range of complexity in his wines. More information about the vineyard’s wine cultivation can be found here.

I enjoyed this red Bordeaux blend tremendously. Chateau du Juge Cru Camille is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine has a smokey aromas with nicely layered ripe berry fruit, hints of spice, oak and vanilla. Nice dry red Bordeaux wine with lots of character that will go perfectly with grilled meats such as New York Strip steak or grilled pork chops.
