BORDEAUX

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.

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...

85% Merlot/15% Cabernet Franc. First impressions are focused on fresh fruit, a lovely nose of red and black berries that still retain a certain crunchiness. On the palate, there is remarkable precision as well as a creamy texture, a charming combination. The ripe Merlot marries beautifully with the more alert Cabernet Franc and it’s the quality of the tannins that...

TASTING NOTES

An harmonious blend of 93% Merlot with 7% Cabernet Franc, this is a very attractive, medium to full bodied wine with ripe plum aromas mingled with sweet wild herbs and hint of lavender. Refreshing red plum flavours, with darker forest fruit notes developing as the wine evolves, are balanced by a lively freshness and a fine mineral quality which runs...

TASTING NOTES

Very elegant, complex and attractive on the nose with notes of stone fruit, apricots and acacia honey with delicate floral characters in the background and a hint of spice. The palate is wonderfully harmonious and refined with beautifully integrated, ripe stone fruit flavours and a refreshing, persistent acidity which runs energetically through to the finish.

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.
