We are always on the lookout for good Petit Chateaux, and Chateau L’Archange fills the bill. Some of the best red wine values in the world come from Bordeaux but people don’t realize it because these very fine smaller wines are so overshadowed by the crazy prices of the classified growths.

Very enticing, with lush plum sauce, anise and boysenberry preserve notes that glide along, framed by toasted spice and carried by creamy structure. Very suave finish. Drink now through 2018. 583 cases made. –JM
