8-29-16 Word On Wine White Bordeaux and CDR! Both around $13!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week Mary and I reviewed a white and a red which are very solid and great for the last days of Summer…that would be the next month or so!


1)2014 Chateau Les Jourdis.  White Bordeaux.  Made by Bernard Magrez.  $14.  This had a dull nose but was great on the pallet.  We really enjoyed the grapefruit and white flowers.

2)Domaine Pelaquie Cotes Du Rhone.  $13.  40% Grenache, 60% Syrah.  The Pelaquie family have only been in the wine business for over three centuries so they pretty much know what they are doing!  This was a perfectly delightful CDR which would stand up to anything on the grill.  Would be great chilled just a tad.

Buy either of these with your eyes closed.

Here’s our show.  Cheers!
