Letting the Wine Be Itself

Continuing my Right Bank tastings today in Pomerol, I found breathtaking 2009 Bordeauxs at Lafleur, La Conseillante and Vieux-Château-Certan

Posted: March 26, 2010  By James Suckling

I am finding that despite the obvious excellence of 2009 in Bordeaux, some wineries did too much with the great grapes they harvested, resulting in overextracted wines. This was not the case, however, at Lafleur, La Conseillante and Vieux-Château-Certan. Here are my notes.

Not Really Lost in the Translation

Posted: March 25, 2010  By James Suckling

I tasted some amazing 2009s today on Bordeaux's Right Bank, and many more that were excellent. The vintage may not have been as easy as some make it out to be, but the 2009 Bordeauxs from Cheval-Blanc, Ausone and Pétrus will all be exceptional wines. Here are my notes.

Bordeaux is buzzing over the 2009 vintage, and after a tasting of all the first-growths, Mouton and Latour clearly have winners in barrel

Posted: March 24, 2010  By James Suckling

I have tasted all the 2009 Bordeaux first-growths over the past two days while on a tasting road trip through Pessac-Léognan and the Médoc, the Holy Grail area for Cabernet Sauvignon in Bordeaux. And, as you probably expected, their 2009s are excellent from barrel. A couple are amazing, notably Mouton-Rothschild and Latour, and here are my notes on them. Montrose and Pichon-Longueville-Lalande also may have made better wines in 2009 than in 2005.

First Impressions on 2009 Bordeaux

A drive up the Médoc includes stops at Margaux, Malescot, Rauzan-Ségla, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Léoville-Barton and Latour, among others

Posted: March 23, 2010  By James Suckling

I am just getting my first impressions of the highly anticipated 2009 vintage in Bordeaux. It may not prove to be as great as 2005 in terms of across-the-board quality, but I have already found some undeniably great wines. Today I drove up the Médoc to taste at some of the famous châteaus, including Cos-d'Estournel, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Giscours, Latour, Léoville-Las-Cases, Léoville-Barton, Malescot-St.-Exupery, Margaux, Palmer, Pichon-Longueville-Baron and Rauzan-Ségla.

One Story of Bordeaux Investment

How 2000 Bordeaux have fared since release

Posted: March 12, 2010  By James Suckling

After hearing that investments in blue-chip Bordeaux supposedly outperformed the London stock market, I decided to take a look at the price of 2000 Bordeaux at release compared to what the bottles are selling for today in the United States. The results are pretty impressive.
