Behind the Golden Veil

Posted: March 29, 2006  By James Suckling

I was tasting some great wines from the Right Bank yesterday, including Pétrus, Cheval-Blanc, Le Pin, Vieux Château Certan and Ausone, and I ran into a grower I know from Graves, and he reminded me of some sad truths about Bordeaux at the moment.

Quote of the Day

Posted: March 29, 2006  By James Suckling

Me at lunch with Fabien Teitgen, technical director of Smith-Haut-Lafitte, discussing why some people seem to be upset that I am writing so positively about the 2005 vintage – especially after all the positive words for 2000 and 2003.

Pricing Therapy

Posted: March 28, 2006  By James Suckling

Before you all start crying about prices, two things. First, no one has released prices yet. Second, even if they are very high, you don’t have to buy the high-priced wines. There are going to be hundreds of good-value Bordeaux with very good to excellent prices.

I am leaving the hotel this moment to taste the heavy hitters in Pomerol and St. Emilion – Pétrus, Le Pin, Ausone, Cheval Blanc…you get the idea. The word is that the wines are amazing. Can’t wait to dip my nose into them! Yesterday was a solid day of tasting Right Bankers, not to mention a detour to Haut-Brion.

All Cream, No Milk?

Posted: March 27, 2006  By James Suckling

I am in the process of tasting a range of Right Bank wines--from unknown names to stars--in a blind tasting this morning in my hotel, and the quality level is incredibly high. Everything seems to be starting at 89 to 91 points--very good to outstanding.

I am looking at my hands this morning after blind tasting about 40 wines from the Right Bank at my hotel Les Sources de Caudalie. My fingers on my right hand, with which I hold my Riedel tasting glass, are stained purple.
