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.

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.

TASTING NOTES

Rich red fruit liqueur with wild strawberry and loganberry sitting beside the perfume of violet and lavender. Very fine textures on the palate with fresh acidity and a mineral backbone providing a perfect counterpoint to the ripeness of the fruit. Sweetness from the oak comes through on the finish but there is certainly enough material to permit this to integrate...

Attractive ripe peach, apricot and honey on the nose with elegant, sweet, stone fruit flavours mingled with sweet ripe apples and spices. Quite subtle but plenty of length with a persistent acidity which gives freshness.Armit Wines

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.
