here) how Les Portes de Bordeaux expanded from just the Bordeaux Superior to a Fronsac. Well they also have a Haut Medoc, and a St. Emillion (the Saint will be blogged about after Christmas, when we'll drink it).
For $9 a bottle, this is a fantastic Haut Medoc. It was rather young, at just 2012, but very drinkable and enjoyable. Like other Haut Medocs, I found it to have a lingering mineral finish on the tongue, pleasant, and dry. A grande vin de Bordeaux indeed. If you see a bottle at your local Trader Joe's, try it.
