2012 Chateau Grand Jean Bordeaux Superieur

2012 Chateau Grand Jean Bordeaux Superieur

For an everyday table wine, I thought this was a pretty good buy.  It was $7.89, and I was looking for an easy red for my wife and I to sip on while we grilled some BBQ chicken and vegetables.  This one fit the bill quite nicely, as so often Bordeaux can.

It’s a simple wine, light purple on the pour with a nose of wild berries and spice.  Medium to full in body with a red fruit profile, sour cherry and plum, some leather and a healthy dose of acidity.  Finishes ok, maybe a little fast.  There’s nothing unpleasant about this wine at any point.  At this price, it’s a great value buy and the perfect everyday drinker, or second bottle when you want something easy and versatile.
