Good news about Bordeaux. You CAN afford to drink it. OK. Maybe you aren't popping the cork on a bottle of vintage Chateau Lafite every night (and if you are, good for you), but the truth is there is a lot of wine made in Bordeaux, and in the best vintages like 2009 and 2010, there are some astonishingly good values in the $10 to $20 range. Like this 2010 Haut de Poujeaux, Haut Medoc. From the owners of Chateau Poujeaux in Moulis, this Cab/Merlot blend is a big, full-bodied wine, rich and round with superb structure. Plenty of ripe red fruits here, cherry and plum. I like this even better than the 2009. Approachable now but will more than reward another 3 to 5 years in the cellar.
