The Best Type of Red Wine


The Top Ten

1 French Bordeaux

The French wines are so numerous, diversified, that is impossible to make a choice even a list.

The problem they are not known as they should, French have in that poor marketing behavior.

That's a pity.

Simply the top with other lots of different French wines.

Champagne for all ;-))

We so so love real fabulous wines like that.

Certainly Bordeaux are the best red wines.

There are lots of different kind of Bordeaux from 4$ to thousands...

From Château XYZ to Petrus.

Great great so great wines.

But some other Countries now are also using French grapes and are also producing very good red wine: California, Chili, Australia, South-Africa and of course Spain.

2 Spanish Rioja

Definitively better than disgusting and acid Italian wines.

Yes, a very delicious Spanish red wine.

Voted by spaniard of course,but disgusting,good only to low level restaurant

3 Australian Shiraz

It has to be Wolfblass Yellow Label Shiraz for a quality but reasonably priced red. But Rawnsley estate do a lovely shiraz for slightly cheaper.

Ahaha water wine! So bad tasting!

4 French Beaujolais

Also great with Cheddar cheese.

It first is results in a fruity wine without much tannin. In the case of Beaujolais nouveau, this process is completed in as little as four days with the other AOCs being allowed longer time to ferment. As the grapes ferment longer, they develop more tannins and a fuller body

Beaujolais is far to be the best French wine, but because it's from France is the origin of any other wine.

5 Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon

It should say any Cabernet Sauvingnon (I dont drink but I've had "experience" with this wine). - fireinside96

Cabernet Sauvignon is a French origin grape and Chilean know how to deal with this famous and one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties.

6 Californian Zinfrandel

Nice wine and largely better than an Italian chianti for example.

Nice wine and largely better than a chianti for example.

7 Argentinian Malbec

Malbec wine is the best bar none

Home of the best wines.

The Punta de Flecha2009 is absolutely nice with well round taste and finish.

8 Italian Chianti

Absolutely low level quality wine.

Comment below: 30$ for a bottle of cianti.. It's wasting money.
For this sum I do prefer to have real fun.

Castillo Di Rampolla

Chianti is the king of reds, and the best red to cook with, it is also the best Red for eating with cheese. Also whether you get a $10 bottle, or a $30 plus. I have never had a bad bottle. I can't say that with Merlot, Cab Sav, or Shiraz. - raidermatty

9 French Pauillac
10 French Bourgogne

Goes well with goat cheese - kate_evdokimova

French Bourgogne after Chianti? What a shame.

The Contenders

11 Haut-Médoc
12 Chablis
13 Georgian Ojaleshi

Best of the best

Ojaleshi is one of the best red semi sweet wines made from the grape variety of the same name cultivated on the mountain slopes overhanging the banks of the tsknetis tskali river particularly in the Orbeli village and Samegrelo district (Western Georgia). Ojaleshi has dark ruby colour, a gentle bouquet and aroma and harmonious rich taste with a fruity flavor. It contains 10 - 12 % alcohol. - Georgitopten
