I had my first 'high end' Bdx Blanc, 2010 Domaine de Chevalier. More than I spend on almost any other bottle, since the lads on their trip with Hamish loved it so much. Opened for Christmas with high expectation, but was corked. The vendor 'Grand Vin Wine Merchants' in Olympia, WA told me to get f*cked. I have one more, but unless it is the business, it will be my last, save for the under $20 bottles
There is a multitude of excellent and cheap dry Bordeaux wines, apart from the classified wines. Formerly, I had bought 12 bottles of Château Carbonnieux 1975 but I was disappointed, it was a discreet wine, flat, without large size, on the other hand if you find them, here are good addresses: Château Thieuley, vintage Francis Courselle (excellent), about $ 10, Chateau Civrac-Lagrange (Graves less than $ 10) excellent guard, château Suau oak barrel in Capian (Gironde) (about $ 8), Entre Deux Mers "vintage Hortense" about $ 6 . We do not ruin and we are greatly pleased!
Otherwise, take a tour of Montravel and Bergerac. Many dry white wines are worth great dry white Bordeaux!
