French high end feud

French High End Feud


Dear Wine Lover,

The Cellarmaster, Paul Kalemkiarian.What better way to honor the French than to toast a glass of their finest. The feud between Burgundy (Pinot Noir) and Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot etc) is hundreds of years old. 

Burgundy being in the center northest of France home of gorgeous Pinot Noir and Bordeaux being in the SouthWest of France touting exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (actually "5" grapes are allowed there) there is an ever present feud as to whose wines are, frankly, better. 

Each region has it premium districts and each has its consumer level wines. I set out to find the best values from these two regions and WOW did I find some great wines.
