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.

A sweet nose with cherry jam and vanilla aromas. On the palate the wine is more relaxed and well-integrated and the class starts to show itself. Mid-palate is elegant and sumptuous and follows through with complexity and a stylish finish. Very good wine from a property that is improving all the time.

Lovely red fruits on the nose with delicate perfume of lavender and dog rose. Restrained style, lovely balance and finely grained tannins. A melée of English summer pudding. Lovely poise, ripeness and purity with length, elegance and vinosity and an excellent mineral backbone - very good indeed. - 17 points

Produced as a second label from the Haut Brion estates, this cracker of a wine has all of the character and style of its stablemates and is a brilliant entry point to the whites of this wonderful estate. Haut Brion at a fraction of the price- what¿s not to love? Mineral, racy and lovely Graves typicity here. This is beautifully...

Very sweet, ripe berry aromas with exotic spices. On the palate, bold, ripe plum flavours with dark fruit notes are balanced by firm tannins and a vivacious acidity. This is a full bodied, masculine wine with plenty of depth. It will need a few years to open up. Drink 2017 - 2028

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.
