Best-value Bordeaux of 2012

  • Friday 7 December 2012

Of the 435 Bordeaux wines submitted for Decanter panel tastings over the past year, 129 were rated 'Highly Recommended' or 'Outstanding'. The 25 best-value wines were drawn from the ones priced below the average price point of their tasting. For this table we combined the percentage by which they undercut this average price with the wine's score to come up with the final marking. (NB: The Medoc first growths were removed from this calculation as their exceptionally high prices skewed the results.)
