Great Wines Under $35

omotosando | Feb 12, 2011 06:29 PM

$35 is my cutoff for a non special occasion wine, and I'm looking for suggestions for stellar wines in the under $35 range.

I have eclectic tastes and enjoy red, white and rosé. My only taste parameters are that I don't like reds that are super jammy and I don't like whites that are floral or taste of melon (a prejudice that I have brought over from years of tea drinking where I loathe flowery and/or fruity teas).

The best wine I have had recently in the under $35 category was a 2007 Saint-Joseph "Offerus" from Jean-Louis Chave Selections, which I got for under $25. That was a seriously good Syrah and much better than a lot of more expensive wines I have had lately. Other than that, a lot of the random bottles that I have picked up lately in the $20-$30 price range have been disappointments. Not exactly undrinkable, but not anything I would go out of my way to drink again.
