Lurton: A Man of Many Chateaus

Pierre Lurton--modern multi-tasker and upholder of tradition--runs two of Bordeaux's top chateaus, Cheval Blanc and Yquem, as well as his own Chateau Marjosse. The winemaking and wines are so different! How does he find the balance to do it all?

Too Much Excellent Wine and Not Enough Time

Posted: October 20, 2006  By James Suckling

This blog and the Grand Tasting at the California Wine Experience have a lot in common. I don’t have enough time for both of them! Last night was fantastic, with so many outstanding wines to taste, but I just didn’t have time to try all of them.

Bordeaux for my Father

Posted: October 18, 2006  By James Suckling

I had dinner at my father’s the other night in San Diego. He is a keen Bordeaux lover but doesn’t buy much of the stuff because he is semi-retired and thinks it’s too expensive. He still remembers drinking Lafite and Mouton for $10 or $15 a bottle back in the 1970s, so he doesn’t like to drop hundreds of dollars on a bottle of fine wine.

The Power of Pichon-Lalande

Posted: October 16, 2006  By James Suckling

I went to a vertical tasting of Château Pichon-Longueville-Lalande in London a few weeks ago. London wine merchants Farr Vintners organized the event and Gildas d’Ollone, general manager of the estate, was there.

Posted: October 13, 2006  By James Suckling

Why isn’t there much Bordeaux on wine lists in America? Bordeaux wine merchant Pierre Antoine Casteja asked the question when we were having dinner with another Bordeaux négociant, Pierre Lawton, and New York wine merchant Jeff Zacharia and their wives.

Bordeaux: Suddenly It's a Hard Sell

Posted: October 12, 2006  By James Molesworth

Here's some food for thought... I met briefly with Hélène Garcin-Lévêque today. She owns Poesia , a very promising new project in Argentina. Her family also owns Clos L'Église in Pomerol, along with a few other small properties, such as Château Barde-Haut and Château Haut-Bergey.

Mouton y Chocolate

Posted: October 1, 2006  By James Suckling

A couple of friends threw a birthday party for me in the coolest restaurant in Havana, La Guarida. For those who saw the Cuban movie Fresa y Chocolate , this is the restaurant where it was filmed. It is probably the best restaurant in Cuba, and it is also privately owned.

2005 Merlot Madness in Bordeaux

Posted: September 26, 2006  By James Suckling

The dusty streets of Havana are a long way from the vineyards and cellars of Bordeaux, but I was thinking this morning over a café con leche about the Merlots I tasted from barrel last week while in France.

Pétrus Unplugged and the Bordeaux Machine

Posted: September 22, 2006  By James Suckling

I never thought I would be dancing shirtless at Château Pétrus. Mykonos or St. Tropez, yes..but Pétrus? I went to the harvesters’ party last night at the famous Pomerol estate, and the 50 pickers, along with the owners, were rocking.

Great Vintages and Growers’ Vintages

Posted: September 21, 2006  By James Suckling

I just finished tasting the 2005 Mouton-Rothschild at the château, and I am impressed. The wine is much better than when I tasted it in late March. It has serious concentration of fruit and super well-integrated tannins.

A Foggy Crystal Ball on 2006 Bordeaux

Posted: September 20, 2006  By James Suckling

I had a winemaker in Bordeaux ask me today if I felt that the expensive prices for 2005 were my fault? I laughed. But I was slightly annoyed too. “Don’t shoot the messenger,” I told him. I tasted the wines.

Agony and Ecstasy in Bordeaux

Posted: September 19, 2006  By James Suckling

The weather is not looking good for the harvest in Bordeaux. It’s been raining on and off since I arrived here on Saturday, and it just started raining again as I sit here and write this blog this morning and begin to blind taste a range of 1996 and 1995 Bordeaux.

A Perfect Day in Bordeaux

Posted: September 17, 2006  By James Suckling

I sat this morning in my hotel in Bordeaux, Les Sources de Caudalie, and tasted a range of 1996 and 1995 reds. It was a perfect day for tasting. I was in a good mood. The weather was sunny and bright after three days of cold and very wet weather.

Pichon-Lalande in London and 1996 Versus '95

Posted: September 11, 2006  By James Suckling

I am sitting at Zafferano, the best Italian restaurant in London, with Gildas d’Ollone, general manager of Château Pichon-Longueville-Lalande. We just finished tasting 14 vintages of Pichon-Lalande during a Farr Vintners' tasting.
