Underrated Bordeaux - Côtes de Castillon
Clos de La Vieille Eglise 2005 - Côtes de Castillon, can be found at Total Wine for about $10. It's wonderful. Slightly mineral in finish, as many Côtes de Castillons are, I think the French don't appreciate the north bank of the Dordogne River very much unless it is labeled Pomerol or St.Emilion (which are both delicious, but rather pricey). Côtes de Castillon is directly adjacent to the East of St.Emilion, and nearly as tasty.
