These are both delicious and affordable.
2004 Rol Valentin St. Emilion Grand Cru....$35.99

"Fresh and aromatic, with blackberry, chocolate and raspberry. A gorgeous nose. Full-bodied, yet balanced and refined, with caressing tannins and a long finish. Wonderful for the vintage. Harmonious. Consistently outstanding. Best after 2010. 1,585 cases made. –JS"

2006 Chateau Teyssier
St. Emilion Grand Cru....$22.99
“The 2006 (90), which I did not review in my report published in issue #181, is an outstanding success as well as a sleeper of the vintage. Its dark ruby color is accompanied by plenty of black fruit, licorice, earth, and spice characteristics. It should drink nicely for 8-10 years..”
