Porthos Exclusive 
Nestled between Bordeaux legends Chateau Petrus ($2,000+ per bottle) and Cheval Blanc ($1,000+) in Pomerol, the small estate of Chateau Les Grands Sillons has been crafting tiny amounts of wine, flying under-the-radars of many collectors. Available for less than $60, this Porthos exclusive Chateau Les Grands Sillons Pomerol 2012 way over-delivers in quality considering the relatively humble price. A prime candidate for best Bordeaux value of the year, this gem is ready to drink now, and will continue to impress for years to come. Stock up by the case. 

“Classic” 95 Points
“Showing the tell-tale signs of plum, currant and tobacco leaf in the bouquet, this Pomerol delivers a classic Bordeaux experience from start to finish. Beautifully balanced on the palate, it offers fine layers of dark fruit, cigar, sage and a core of minerality. Still extremely youthful, it will age beautifully for over a dacade. ” - California Wine Advisors
