Domaine Bosc-Long Reserve, Gaillac, France 2010

For those sharp-eyed among you, you might think you have already seen this wine on our list, but if you look closely you’ll see that this has the name Bosc-Long ‘Reserve’ on it. Like its sibling the Bosc-Long Braucol 2010, this is made from the Braucol grape, but it is “plumped up” by some Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, so you get a little less of the ‘leafy’ character and more dark plum, forest fruits and old wood aromas with a riper, fuller palate.

But that’s not why it’s on our list. It’s on our list because it’s one of the best value red wines you will ever try. It tastes like a seriously good, full-bodied Saint Emilion for which we, for one, would expect to pay a pretty penny. It should be paired with classic dishes, like roast lamb or roast beef. Do not drink it with molecular gastronomy or it will ruin the powdered kelp and kumquat foam. Aged for 15 months in new and old oak barrels. 13% alc. Drink now-2020.
