    To conviviality, and the love of good taste. The most classic cuve of Chateau Bourdieu is elaborated in order to offer a fruity and supple wine while respecting the spirit of the terroir and the appellation. It is an ode to Merlot and to the region of Blaye. Blend: 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc.
    This wine oflers a beautiful red ruby color deep and intense. The nose is particularly fruity. Its exhales red fruits and blackcurram aromas, completed by notes of redcurrant. A rmind and gmtrmet wine with smooth, mellow tannins express an elegant structure.

    1. David Mulcahy

      Shockingly ripe that is.

    2. Kira Benson

      Its extracted but tastes darn good. Fresh but with intensity.

    3. Judy Rocha

      Red ruby center fading to garnet; shy and nearly closed, opens to a bowl of crushed black fruits, plums and berries, a faint hint of mineral. On the palette, an immediate respect for the balance, soft tannins & fruit tightly wound throughout with a lingering acidity on the finish. 1/3 bottle consumed; following evening, most notably, the impeccable balance between fruit, tannin and acid remained, nuanced aromas of fruits. Merits case purchases, beautiful now after 20 minutes of air, better 2022-2027

    4. Phillip Jones

      Good color, very young. A bit rough but all the right stuff is there. Really needs time to develop, but think it will be 2-4 points better with two years.

    5. Gloria Witkowski

      Pleasantly surprised by this wine. Very round, with depth and intensity. Cassis and earth on the nose with a decent finish. Excellent QPR…quality to price ratio. Drank 1/2 of the bottle with dinner, left the rest of it corked on the counter for 3 days, drank it last night and it was perfect.

    6. Christopher Cox

      Fresh, juicy red fruit. Light structure with bright acidity. Had high hopes based on other reviews and I must say I’m a bit disappointed. Still it’s not a bad qpr. Probably be better in 5 years.4th day this was better. Smokey. Finish was very long.

    7. Paula Bailey

      Not bad for a $14 bottle, but not what I’m looking for in a Bordeaux

    8. Marilyn Sullivan

      Agree with Vitroman. Easy 90-something. A crowd-pleaser. Enjoyed with dinner (vegetarian from our local cantina). So good, that it was gone with the sun set. Has perfect balance, acidity and a juiciness that probably should be illegal. Will be interesting to see how this develops in bottle; i.e., if the others don’t disappear by summer . . . 14.5% abv. QPR. D/H

    9. Thomas Logan

      Other reviews capture the essence of this wine very well. Took a few mins to open up then bam! Crushed black fruits; a most excellent balance of fruit, alcohol and tannins. Delicious and would be interested in trying one cellared a bit longer.

    10. Bernice Hooser

      Wonderful aromas of fresh red fruit on the nose. Delightfully complex texture on the palate. Great blend of 87% Merlot, 10% Cab Sau and 3% Cab Franc.

    11. Clifford Thao

      Easy drinking. Balanced dark fruit. Lush. Agree with other comments.

    12. Carla Antle

      A very nice bottle of reasonably priced Bordeaux. Decanter said 97 Pts. That’s a bit optimistic unless the grading is solely QPR. Perhaps a 30 minute decant is called for but it drinks well as a PNP. Nothing bad to say about this wine, for the price, a delightful bottle. I bought a case and will enjoy over the next few years. Age won’t hurt this wine but I doubt it will improve it significantly either.

    13. Debrah Moon

      Good one

    14. Mary Stephens

      The score of 97 was from 2020 Decanters World Wide Wine awards which gave wines that reached the “Platinum.” Our group enjoyed the wine and thought it was is good QPR. It needed an hour of air to open up but can definitely be enjoyed now.

    15. Shawn Hamlin

      Good for midweek dinner, not sure I’d take to a BYOB.

    16. Charles Johnson

      With this price who could complain? Nevertheless ratings much over 90 points are delusional. For a French wine it is relatively fruity which I feel covers it’s flaws like a makeup foundation. Which makes it a good wine to sip not so great with food. Dark fruits, cassis, medium acidity. Great QPR and Popular at a Party.

    17. Myron Thomas

      Château Bourdieu’s 2019 is a deep ruby/crimson blend of 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. This particular bottle was Vinturi-decanted and serially tasted over the ensuing three hours, fully expressing itself after the first hour in decanter. Ripe and rich, it is loaded with intoxicating black, red and blue fruit on both the nose and palate. With a supporting cast of baking spices, lavender, mocha and licorice, it is hard to put down the glass. Despite its ripeness, this medium-bodied red stays in check, with restrained alcohol (listed as 14.5%), excellent freshness, judicious oak and medium-weight, fine-grained tannins. Plump on the mid-palate and lingering nicely on the finish, this Right Bank Bordeaux is a joy to drink. That said, if tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be a New World Merlot or Merlot/Cabernet blend. With its broad appeal and attractive price in mind, this would be one to purchase by the case and serve as the red wine option at a cocktail party. I suspect that this precocious wine will be at its best during its first decade. Drink now-2029.

    18. Helen Floyd

      This wine starts with a nose of smokey oak that remains forward in tasting when it is joined with hints of blackberry, cassis and moss in the background. The tannins and alcohol strike a somewhat discordant note as they noticably present themselves and then linger with the barrel flavors through the finish. Paired well with sirloin steaks served over a bed of sautéed Swiss chard, red onions, kalamata olives and currants with a balsamic vinegar and brown sugar reduction.This is a young wine (2019) at an inexpensive price point (I paid less than $12). It has the potential to come together as it ages with the barrel flavors mellowing and blending with the flavors of the grapes and the tannins and alcohol becoming more refined. This wine could reach a 90 in a couple of years, but for now it is very good for its price point. Will buy a couple more to see how they turn out in a couple of years. Best drinkability probably is 2023 to 2025

    19. Guadalupe Barley

      Taut and polished across the palate, this delivers more mouthfeel than substance. Dark fruit with a smoky top note offers a generic profile that lacks richness or typicity. Not a bad wine for the price, just not that interesting.

      Anton’s Wine Tasting NotesWinery: Château Bourdieu Varietal: 87% Merlot 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet FrancArea/Appellation: France, Blaye Côtes De Bordeaux Vintage: 2019 Price: $22 Kansas Market Price.Color: dark ruby from below, dark ruby from above Legs: Moderate to fastNose: black berries, plums and roasted prunes.loam, black olive, fennel, tobacco.Palate: damson plums, prunes some black cherry, cassis, oak, more earthy textures including black tea, black olives.Finish: Damson plums, black cherry, prunes, A fine aged tobacco note, some fennel, black olives. Comments: I gave this a good 2 1/2 to 3 hour decant, and I’m glad I did. It made ALL the difference in this wine. You should open it up when you get home from work, serve around seven or eight. I got this bottle at Plaza Wine and Spirits, but I’ve also seen it at Auburn Wine and Spirits west and Jacob East and I do believe Jacob West so it’s out there, readily available in the Wichita market. Pairing Suggestions: Get out your Charcuterie board for this and have fun. Of course any paté, simple grilled meats, cold roast, goat and sheep cheeses, brie, camembert, sausages, etc. will work very well.

    21. Irene Gonzalez

      Fairly bland on the nose, light floral but little else. Dark fruits, light herbs and minerals, medium tannins and acid. Probably should have given it more air time to open up.

    22. Samuel Fletcher

      Nice straightforward bordeaux… Not sure I’d load up at $13++, but went down favorably as classic Cotes de Bordeaux

    23. Dorotha Robbins

      Opened my first bottle…shockingly ripe for a young Bordeaux (echoing one of my fellow commentators). Opened nicely after one hour…respectable bouquet (evergreen, over ripe fruit). Full bodied jammy (dark fruit, plum, dark cherry). Would be certain crowd pleaser at any gathering…BUT…not sure that this has the character or tannic back bone for aging. We’ll see…

    24. John Torkelson

      More fruit forward than expected, but exceptionally well balanced. Beautiful acidity, and gentle tannins. Really good, regardless of the $20 price tag

    25. Maira Garske

      This was quite solid with charm and good potential. Tannins not overwhelming and showing ok even at this young stage. Good value.

    26. Carlos Mercer

      I have been giving this some resting time since it hit my cellar. Its been six months time to taste it again, really drink it with food and develop a time frame for the balance. It is starting to be more than just fruit, and I think I will wait until late next summer to try it again.

    27. Dario Shepherd

      Solid young bordeaux. Very enjoyable.

    28. Todd Gargiulo

      This is a very good cherry/kirsch-scented/flavored wine that could pass for a solid cotes du rhone actually, which struck me as unusual, given that it is a Merlot-dominated cheap Bordeaux blend. I preferred the 2018 by a good bit. This seems a little more generic. But for $15, no complaints.

    29. Marco Koch

      Good qpr

    30. Carma Sinnott

      A reliably good wine. Drinks like a much more expensive Bordeaux than it is. It is nicely balanced all the way through, and gives hints of earthiness and licorice.

    31. Richard Johnson

      slow ox. All red fruit from open to 1 hour after open. Blows off to have a slightly tart attack, cherry mid pallete to a solid finish.

    32. Melanie Natividad

      A very nice young & medium bodied Bordeaux blend made from 87% Merlot, 10% Cab, & 3% Cab Franc grapes. Intense concentrations of fruits & nicely balanced by the medium acidity and tannins. Solid finish. With additional 3-4 year cellaring this blend has the potential to be even better.

    33. Geri Thuringer

      Medium-bodied, soft, forward, fruity and polished, there is a core here of plums, espresso and dash of cocoa that comes through quite nicely. You can enjoy this on release and over the next several years.

    34. Diana Wilson

      Good to buy

    35. Andrew Vega

      Good for the price, and improved over the course of the bottle

    36. Amy Smith

      Still youthfull but really rounding out, see why Decantor gave it Platinum. Hitting way above its price point.

    37. Maria Grossmann

      Buy again

    38. Thomas Franklin

      Similar to previous notes. Really solid value, and nothing awry. Held up well on the 2nd day – this was a great case buy.

    39. Mary Fisher

      Not a fan. It’s a cheap bottle, but one can buy much better Bordeaux for the same price. I didn’t take notes but my memory is that it was overly sweet and jammy. I unfortunately have more. I think I will wait quite a while before I open another. Some time will hopefully improve this.

    40. Christopher Wiles

      Drinking smooth now . Delicious Merlot prominent Bordeaux blend

    41. Yetta Thompson

      Not bad but certainly not great. Lacking in depth and character. It is thin and slight with instant grape but no length or body. Acidity and tannin are decent but this is a poor wine.

    42. Michael Herring

      Probably a little young. Very mild and probably could wait til 2025 for better results

    43. Steven Varillas

      Good value.

    44. Vicki Garvin

      Made for drinking young. Perfect with tenderloin and bearnaise. Not for aging

    45. Doris Stephens

      Popped and poured straight out of the cellar. Ruby color. Black cherry, tobacco, smoke and vanilla on the nose. Sweet, ripe dark fruits on the palate. Pleasant mouthfeel. Lingering finish. Great QPR for a very quaffable, if simple, wine.

    46. Brenda Stover

      Quite nice but nothing that I will remember.

    47. Carl Skerrett

      Good fruit, tannin balances, not much bouquet, 14.5 % abv, very drinkable, still young, drank with loin lamb chops, spinach pie, eggplant, pea shoots and hummus with pita, good value, would drink again.

    48. Ann Perry

      Solid value.

    49. Ronald Armstrong

      Decanted and consumed first with steak, then on its own. Improved with decanting time, but was not crying for it early. don’t drink this too warm (general advice on reds…!)Great aromatics on this wine, along with really good acid/mineral balance. Probably a bit young still, but very enjoyable. Palate of mixed dark and red fruits, with, to me, some blueberry in there. Not terribly earthy. Pretty classic merlot-driven with Cab Franc making tiself known for structure and tannin. (hope i guessed right!).

    50. DEC

      Flamboyant and deep, with ample, lush and fresh forest fruits, bramble and cassis, with cascading sweet spice swiftly following. A super, brooding wine which will shine brighter with time.

    51. JS

      Blackberry and black-olive aromas. Medium body with round, dusty tannins. Chocolate aftertaste. Merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Better in a year.

    52. VIN

      The 2019 Bourdieu is rich, fruity and super-expressive. Sweet floral and savory notes from the Cabernets perk up the Merlot fruit. Dark cherry, pomegranate, blood orange, red plum, mocha and licorice all build nicely in this sumptuous Cotes de Blaye. The 2019 has plenty to offer.
