With the U.S. dollar getting stronger against the Euro, wines from Europe are becoming a little more affordable. One bargain from France is Château du Juge Bordeaux
This pleasant, everyday Bordeaux comes from the right bank of the Garonne River Valley. The southwest facing slopes of the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux furnish the complex soil-structure and the climatic conditions that are necessary prerequisites to the production of great Bordeaux.
Château du Juge Bordeaux is remarkably harmonious and well-structured for the price. I like to drink de Juge with steak frites, but it also pairs well with pasta Bolognese.
