Bordeaux wines are becoming increasingly more expensive and the best value reds from that region are the smaller properties like the Verdignan. 2009 and 2010 are two excellent vintages and the wines from these vintages are drinking perfectly right now. The colour is deep dark red. The nose is discrete with nice dark fruit, some herbs and vanilla. Well balanced taste with firm soft tannins. A nice Bordeaux at around 270 NOK or 20€.
