    Wine of the Week 19 – a superior Bordeaux Supérieur

    Vineyards in Entre-Deux-Mers. I’m not a great one for the cheaper end of Bordeaux, the sort of wine that was described as ‘luncheon claret’ when I joined the wine trade.

If I can't have them that way, I like them Thai Chili or just about any way they're made.
