Chateau Saint Sulpice 2010
When I was a schoolboy, we used to make jokes about "les suplices of Saint Sulpice--the agonies of St Sulpice". Never mind, this red Bordeaux blend (mostly Merlot), originating not a dozen miles from the outskirts of that city, is a civilized wine, with subdued fruity elements, and a long lasting finish. $11.99, which is about average throughout the U.S.
