Château de Seguin 2004, Bordeaux, France
This great little wine (thanks Inge) was enjoyed with a lovely green peppercorn stew at a recent dinner back in Sweden. Mom and dad (who really enjoyed it), you can find it at systembolaget for 89 Swedish crowns (nr 3958). For those of you in the UK looking for a good drop of Bordeaux at a decent price this one is stocked by frenchwinepeople.co.uk. Another favourite inexpensive Bordeaux is Château Segonzac 2004 Premières Côtes de Blaye stocked by waitrosewine.com. It’s a lovely, full-bodied red with a nice plummy palate and a good grip. Both are good food wines matching red meat dishes or, for my vegetarian friends, perhaps try it with a hearty bean stew.
