Ringing up at around $20- 30, the 2005 vintage of Chateau de Tiregand's Grand Millésime is an excellent find.
Chateau de Tiregand is a blended red wine with a brick-red presentation. The bouquet provides one's nose with a complex blend of plum and spices. While the ether of this wine carries a slightly spicy sweetness, its full-bodied palette is dry and well balanced.
