A Tough Question...

Posted: June 2, 2006  By James Molesworth

I was sitting with my wife at dinner, lingering over a glass of '59 Latour , watching the sheets of rain come down outside. "So, like the wine?" I asked. "Yes," she said. "Is it great?" I asked. "Yes," she said, but with slightly less conviction.

Bordeaux's Tricky 2005

Posted: June 2, 2006  By James Suckling

Spoke to a few heavy-hitter wine merchants about the 2005 Bordeaux, and they seemed a little concerned. They said that they had not had the unbridled demand that they had expected for Bordeaux’s newest vintage, especially compared to 2000.

Still Waiting For 2005 Bordeaux Futures

Posted: May 31, 2006  By James Suckling

Is anyone else getting a little fed up? I can’t understand why most of the big-name Bordeaux châteaus have not released their prices for 2005 futures, or en primeur. It seems that the proverbial iron is getting cold as the Bordelais try to figure out what prices they should sell their new wines for.

Family Goodbyes at Montrose and Pichon-Lalande

Posted: May 6, 2006  By James Suckling

LOS ANGELES – I had dinner last night at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant Chinoise on Main for a vertical tasting of Trimbach Clos Ste.-Hune and Cuvée Frederic Emile. As good as the wines were, the most impressive part of the tasting was a short conversation I had with Jean-Michel Cazes of Château Lynch-Bages.

No Faith or Fed Up?

Posted: May 2, 2006  By James Suckling

ROME -- I am boarding a plane from Rome to New York for the Wine Spectator Grand Tour tonight, and I just read James Hannan’s remark about Bordeaux. I am scratching my head a bit. I have the same idea about how Bordeaux represents relatively good value, even many of the top wines, and it doesn’t seem that many people understand this.

Posted: April 28, 2006  By James Suckling

The European wine trade has been talking a lot about the massive price increase for the 2005 wine from St. Emilion estate of Quinault L'Enclos. I am not sure what price it was sold to the Bordeaux wine trade, but in England it appears to be going for about 250 Sterling a case, or $450.
