When you start learning about Bordeaux, you learn about the famed appellations of the left and right banks and their famous estates, but once you truly know about Bordeaux, you understand the hidden value that can be found hiding on the outskirts. One particularly fun game we sommeliers play is follow-the-winemaker, or follow the ownership, in Bordeaux. The great estates know there is tremendous quality lying outside of the established regional heirarchy. Follow their investments. It will lead you to value. Take this property from the Mitjavile family as a great example. Château Tertre-Rotebouef, the premier estate of the Mitjavile stable, sits around $200 a bottle, and can compete with the Le Pins of Bordeaux in some years. Yet, L'Aurage, an estate purchased in 2005 by the Mitjavile family and positioned only 10 miles from the other prestigious estates of Saint-Émilion, commands a fraction of the price. These are rich, approachable Bordeaux wines that offer a lot of generosity when young, and offer some of the best value at their respective price points.
