2021 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Supérieur is a red wine blend in a style common to the region and retails at a budget price. Although we often read about the staggering cost of many premiers cru wines imported into the US from Bordeaux, most high quality wines produced in this region retail under $20 (US) in France and much of Europe. Costco offers a couple Bordeaux wines under $20, this one sells at the lowest retail price and is an excellent value.
