Second wines

Same work than the first but a price that is more accessible

Farly more than second qualities, they offer an alternative view of the same exceptionnal soil.

If in the past, they were considered as wines that do not deserve consideration, the second wines success to be taken with the same attention as the first. Less quantities, work that is better in the vineyard...all is made by the estates to increase their second qualities. Today there is real concurrence on this market and each one try to do a better one than his neighboor. The result is often a mervellous quality with a very good price/quality ratio.

The non-classified wines

There is many non classified wines that are top qualities.

The non classified are very heterogenous, but some of them are real outsiders into the higher qualities. The prices are usualy comptetitive.

An estate can produce a wine that is not a Classified Growth, nor a Cru-Bourgeois, but that can challenge the higher qualities in the same price range. Indeed, some soils which were not known during the 1855 classification, with human and financial investment, have proved to be wonderful qualities. In Bordeaux, there is plenty examples of estates that were in this case, and they are just waiting you to taste and appreciate their quality.
