Second Wines

Formerly perceived as wines worthy of lesser interest, the second wines knew how to gain a place of honor in the hierarchy of Bordeaux wines. Reduced quantities, better plots ... everything is done by the different areas, in order to offer the best second wine. Competition is real and pushes the various producers to surpass themselves with each harvest to do better than their neighbors. The result is often a superb value for money that will delight the most difficult palates.
