The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Pomerol Precision at Pétrus

Attention to detail and moderation in the cellar gave Jean-Claude and Olivier Berrouet a gorgeous 2014 Right Bank red

Posted: April 2, 2015  By James Molesworth

My final stop during my 2014 Bordeaux barrel tastings was at the revered Right Bank estate of Château Pétrus. With the recent cellar renovation done and the doughty statue of St. Peter safely ensconced somewhere else, Pétrus seems ready to embark on another generation among Pomerol's elite wines.

Posted: April 1, 2015  By James Molesworth

The reserved Alexandre Thienpont continues to pursue the fine details as he manages Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin, and he has been joined by his seemingly equally gifted son Guillaume since 2011. "2014 is classic in style. It's fresh, so it's both rich and with energy," said Alexandre. "With the richness it's also easily digestible. It's not hard or delicate."

Posted: March 31, 2015  By James Molesworth

Through my tastings of the 2014 Bordeaux barrels at various châteaus, I haven't been able to peg the vintage in comparison to another. When I mentioned that to Christian Moueix, he took his customary pause before answering. "We had something like this in 1978," he said. "Of course today we are better than '78 because viticulture has improved so much."

The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Wine of the Vintage Candidates at Cheval-Blanc and Yquem

Pierre Lurton and Pierre-Olivier Clouet have two showstoppers at this year's en primeur

Posted: March 30, 2015  By James Molesworth

At Château Cheval-Blanc, both director Pierre Lurton and technical director Pierre-Olivier Clouet seem to bubble with enthusiasm at all times. I guess it's because they've settled into the new chai, which is both visually stunning and an inspiration in itself, as well as being one of the smartest modern showpiece cellars I've ever seen. Rows of 52 pear shaped cement vats line a massive room, each individually sized to accommodate the 45 different parcels that form the 96 acres of vines here.

Next up on my 2014 Bordeaux barrel tasting tour is Château Léoville Barton. This was my first stop at the St.-Julien estate since 2011 (I try to see different châteaus on every visit—Bordeaux is a big region), and so my first time catching up with the new generation here: Lilian Barton-Sartorius.

The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Patience Pays at Lafite Rothschild

Director Charles Chevalier waited for ripeness at Domaines Barons de Rothschild properties Lafite, L'Evangile and Rieussec

Posted: March 26, 2015  By James Molesworth

Next up in my 2014 Bordeaux barrel tasting tour of the first-growths is Château Lafite Rothschild. Director Charles Chevalier noted that the oddity of August's cool temperatures meant his vineyard team had extra work to do, both in terms of viticulture, to ensure ripening, and then extra diligence at harvest for sorting.
