Red Bordeaux Wine From Supermarkets Under £20

Posted by

The Scotsman has an article on Best red Bordeaux wine from supermarkets for under £20. The article discusses the author’s evolving appreciation for wine, particularly Bordeaux wines. Initially viewing Bordeaux as exclusive and expensive, the author, Rosalind Erskine, has discovered affordable and quality options available in supermarkets.

The journey has highlighted both the traditional appeal of Bordeaux wines and the value found in lesser-known regions and producers, proving that quality does not always come with a high price tag.

Here is a summary of the wines mentioned, along with their prices and suppliers. It’s strange two of them are not from supermarkets, as the title of the article suggests.
