BORDEAUX WINE REGION

The greatest vineyards have of course proved that they will produce great wine whatever the conditions. In a region as renowned and celebrated for its rich history as Bordeaux, twenty years is a mere blink of the eye. However, the changes over the last two decades have been profound. Vineyards have changed hands, new winemaking techniques have come and gone and of course the worldwide interest in the very greatest wines has gone into overdrive.

TASTING NOTES

Pure blueberry and cassis nose with notes of dark plum and spice underneath. This is made in a full, concentrated style with excellent depth of material and quality of fruit, exuding health and vitality. The tannic structure is serious but perfectly ripe, in harmony with all of the other elements. Excellent length here too and a wine undoubtedly representative of...

Very harmonious. Unctuous tropical fruit tempered by citrus juice and zest: lemon and lime. Spicy and savoury complexity with real depth from botrytis. Layered and rich yet fresh, lively and focussed. Sweet precision.

Lovely core of dense black fruit combining well with minerals, toasty oak and wood spice. Intense, poised and with considerable zip here too. Very respectable, should be excellent value. 17 points

TASTING NOTES

An exotic spiciness on the nose here, almost flamboyantly aromatic. On the palate, there is an easy, lilting flow and an engaging personality that it is impossible not to like. Alongside the spices comes earthiness, mocha, fleshy, plummy fruit and a smooth, creamy note from well-integrated oak. A beautiful finish, revelling in its natural balance, this is a confident wine...

BORDEAUX WINE REGION

Fashions have seen the rise and fall of the garagistes and the influence of the consultant winemaker. However, for all of these human elements, the 1855 classification remains unchanged and, whether it has been the torrid heat of 2003, the gloom of 2007 or the glory of 2005, the greatest vineyards have proved that they produce great wine whatever the conditions.

In the next twenty years, we will undoubtedly see further pressure on supply at the top with prices continuing to stretch credulity. But what of the hundreds of smaller producers, who have struggled so badly in recent times? Theirs is not the good fortune of great terroir and in a fast moving world, it is here that reform is needed most strongly. The EU wine lake has been emptied and the bad practices that it encouraged are happily draining away too. For the consumer, the result must be the guarantee of ever greater quality because whatever the level of classification, if Bordeaux wants to maintain its position as the number one wine region in the world, quality must be at the centre of its plans.
