For fabulous Bordeauxs at half the price try France's "second label" wines. They are dead ringers for a "Grand Vin" but are the result of over production and younger vines. Try Carruades de Lafite 2004 @ $44, Les Hauts de Pontel-Canet 2000 @ $24, and Amiral de Beychevelle 2002 @ $29. For remarkable roses try 2005 Bonny Doon "Vin Gris de Cigare" from CA @ $13, and 2005 "Sabine" Rose from Bieler Pere et Fils-France @ $10 or try 2005 Routas "Rouviere" Rose also from France @ $11.
