Bordeaux - my first wine love! Drinking a bottle of 1997 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou in the Oddbins shop I'd just started work in opened my eyes to how good Bordeaux can be. However in the years since that, prices of first and second growths have skyrocketed and so I have focused on value for money with my Bordeaux range. This doesn't mean all the wines here are cheap, but they all offer exceptional value for money, regardless of the price.
Even though Ducru still has a special place in my heart, the producers I really love now are Chateau La Tour de By, Chateau Siaurac and the Andre Lurton estates in Pessac-Leognan, and if white wines are your thing, Chateau Haut-Rian and Chateau Graville Lacoste (as well as Lurton again!) are superb wines to try.
