    Chateau Tournefeuille is an amazingly balanced and tasty Bordeaux.  Made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc from biodynamically farmed grapes, this classic wine hails from the AOC of Lalande-de-Pomerol, literally a stone's throw from the more famous Pomerol appellation, and more importantly, adjacent to Pomerol's most famous winery, Chateau Petrus.

    I visited this winery a few years back, and was amazed at their quiet determination to produce a very high quality wine at am extremely reasonable price - $29.99 per bottle.
