Does a Good $10 Wine Exist? That was the question Lettie Teague from the Wall Street Journal asked in February. Yes, she said. "$10 can get you a good bottle of wine. These bottles are true bargains, easy to drink as well as easy on the wallet." The highlight, a charming White Bordeaux from Château de Beauregard-Ducourt. "The Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux—south of the more famous Saint-Émilion region and north of the better known Barsac—has long been home to bargain bottles of red and white Bordeaux of small repute. Only fairly recently have many of those wines, still well-priced, begun proving pretty good. The Ducourt family, owners of Château de Beauregard-Ducourt, have been producing wine in Bordeaux for over 150 years. They currently own 15 châteaux in various appellations including Entre-Deux-Mers. Although I tasted other cheap Sauvignon Blancs (including three from New Zealand), this blend of Sauvignon and Sémillon was decidedly more pleasant: crisp and citric with bright but nonaggressive acidity. It would make a refreshing aperitif or partner to seafood." We've been sold out for months since her article came out. It's back for the summer!.
"Tight and tangy with mineral notes under the lime and grassy ripe pit fruit. Very pure and bright with excellent persistence on the finish." The Wine Buyer, 90 Points
