2004 Bordeaux Wine Buying Guide Tips on Best Value Wines

This is a list of top 2004 Bordeaux wine values. These are the best Bordeaux wines offering quality, character, price from every major Bordeaux appellation in this vintage. Due to the high prices asked for the subsequent, 2005 Bordeaux vintage, 2004 was considered by many to be the last value vintage from the region. And with few exceptions, that is good way to look at it. Years like 2004 Bordeaux are useful, they are perfect for drinking today, while waiting for the bigger, more tannic years like 2000 and 2005 to mature. 2004 Bordeaux is equally successful in both banks. Most 2004 Bordeaux wines can still be purchased at fair prices today.
