Tasting Notes

Chateau Valentons-Canteloup Bordeaux Superieur is a family-owned property that sits just along the Dordogne river in Bordeaux. It is owned by the Meynard family and Jacques Meynard makes all the wine on the property from white to rose to red. Jacques also makes a wine under the label of Chateau Valentons-Canteloup that he calls "Cuvee Excentrique", and it is truly eccentric for a Bordeaux Superieur, made from Petit Verdot (70%) and Merlot (30%).

    “Cuvée Excentrique” offers Bordeaux lovers the unique Petit Verdot experience, with a blend of 70% Petit Verdot and 30% Merlot. It has rich flavors of blackberries, plums and gravelly minerals with violet and lilac aromas, great acidity and a classic, easy-drinking Bordeaux style. Add 10 years of age and you have one of the best deals in red wine in the store.

    Easily (in my opinion) the best sub $20 Bordeaux I've tasted so far. The label itself could use a bit of work, but as soon as you taste the juice, you quickly forget about the cosmetics and focus on how the flavors speak so much louder than the price point. Its classic Bordeaux spice and woody notes stand out on the nose and the palate is simply covered in light fruit teamed up with earthy/savoury-ness. Awesome vintage, awesome wine.

    Here is an unusual blend of 70% Petit Verdot and 30% Merlot that is a delicious wine in its own right. The middle of baked cherry compote eases into a fine lingering finish of great restraint. This is smooth, plush and ready for tonight.
