Château Puygueraud
The star performer in Francs for more than 20 years – the 1985 is still in prime form – and run by Nicolas Thienpont (other family members own Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin). The cool soils and high altitude give dark ripe wine with the friendly rasp of herbs and a subtle floral scent.
Price: £11.18 (2009) Fine & Rare
