Bordeaux's famous wines range from everyday drinking to some of the most luxurious, exotic and expensive on the planet. Thanks to a series of highly successful and sought after vintages (especially 2000, 2005 and 2009) growers have been able to invest in their vineyards and quality is high across the board. In 2010, astonishingly, the region has lucked out once again - as Neal Martin notes "Whoever's up there bestowed Bordeaux with another embarrassing 'once in a lifetime' vintage that followed the 'once in a lifetime' 2009." Third generation winemaker Serge Charpentier used mostly soft plummy Merlot plus a little Cabernet Sauvignon to produce a rich red that's makes the perfect partner for a Sunday lunch. Let it breathe for an hour or so.
