Why does this bottle from Antonins stands out from the crowded ocean of red Bordeaux? It has a higher than usual proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, and is aged at the domaine for 3-4 years before release. Those qualities are often found in the flagship wines from more famous appellations, but Antonins invests the same time and care in their humble red, which makes it an amazing value and a consistent favorite.
