Antonio Galloni's 30 Top Values
"Savvy readers will find much to like among the more modestly priced wines of 2016. When it comes to quality, value and availability, no region in the world can match Bordeaux.
Bordeaux enjoyed an exceptional vintage in 2016. In brief, the hot summer and long growing season yielded a crop of wines that, at their best, achieve tremendous flavor intensity while retaining considerable freshness and energy.
These are thirty of my favorite budget-friendly 2016s, culled from a list that could have been much longer. Because of the quality of the vintage, this report focuses on reds." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media - April 20, 2017
