I had a very reasonably priced French Bordeaux the other night. So it should be available for anyone. Chateau Moya, 2009
... It has your typical fruit and dirt smells that some of the better French bordeaux have. I have not found many wines that share this blend of fruitiness and earthiness other than a few very expensive bottles. It was well balanced with just enough acid, medium to heavy body, good pallet and surprisingly long finish. I happen to like this type of wine more than any other, .
Funny thing, i've had very few successes at enjoying French wines. I've found somewhat the same for Italian wine. There is something about the 'old world' style that just doesn't appeal to me.
I much prefer more fruit forward, more textured wines which is more common from N. America, Australia and N. Zealand as well as some S. American countries.
I've had some decent success with Spanish wines but they typically use different grapes that are far less common than those found on French soils.
