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

A really entricing nose of bramble and loganberry merging with earthy, animal notes on the palate. Fresh, energetic and nicely balanced with a mineral side coming through on the finish. The team here have judged this exactly right. Drink 2017-2030. 16.35

TASTING NOTES

Very well done! The aromas are full and complex with fine red berry and savoury notes, and on the palate ripe blackberry fruit is intermingled with mulberries and spices. The tannins are firm and structured. Over-all, very elegant and classy, and one of the best examples of this wine tasted en primeur. Drink 2017 ¿ 2026

TASTING NOTES

Attractive lemon and stone fruit aromas with elegant, refreshing gooseberry and lime fruit flavours. Still quite restrained and discreet but there is a wonderful persistence of flavour and a mouthwatering acidity which gives lift and definition. This wine has great potential and will age superbly over the next decade. Drink 2015 - 2025

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.
