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

On the nose, this wine has very sweet, bright redcurrant and cassis aromas with exotic spicy notes. Mouth-watering, pure red berry fruit opens up in the glass to reveal a core of intense, dark fruits which are beautifully balanced by a lively, persistent acidity and integrated tannins. Hints of herbs, leather and smoke give complexity on the finish. Over-all, a...

TASTING NOTES

A wine which shows incredible elegance and depth. A bright redcurrant and plum bouquet with hints of cedar and spice, is followed by pure redcurrant flavours with dark fruits in the background. The tannins are very refined and harmonious and a vibrant, refreshing acidity gives definition and poise. Powerful, yet reserved, this is a real classic of the vintage. Drink...

One of the outstanding successes of the vintage, this powerful and elegant wine is perfumed and rich on the nose with ripe cassis and dark plum fruit aromas and hints of sage and grilled herbs.

TASTING NOTES

Rich pastille fruit with notes of violets and lavender, rather atypical for the Graves but enticing all the same. The Tannins are a little dry and high in number but with further time, they should resolve. This is promising but needs a little more work yet. 15.5 points

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.
