What a Job....

Posted: March 22, 2006  By James Suckling

I am sitting here tasting a range of 2005s from crus bourgeois to crus classés in a blind tasting at my hotel in Pauillac, and it makes me think about what I do. This is what makes being a wine critic a joy – tasting great wines.

Purple Haze in Bordeaux

Posted: March 22, 2006  By James Suckling

I am feeling slightly hazy this morning. I tasted 60 wines yesterday, and I have another 60 to face this morning in blind tastings at my hotel Cordeillan-Bages in Pauillac. I also feel like I ate a ton of lead last night at dinner with Michel Rolland.

Margaux Magic

Posted: March 21, 2006  By James Suckling

Great beauty is so obvious—women, art, and wine, whatever. You know when you find it, and I certainly found it today in Bordeaux. I just tasted the 2005 Margaux, and it took my breath away. This is a wine that could be 100 points when it is finally bottled.

Quote of the Day

Me yesterday at Léoville Barton while tasting the 2005 with owner Anthony Barton: “Anthony. What have you changed? This 2005 is very impressive. It reminds me of the 2003,” I said. “I have done nothing different,” he said, looking rather perplexed.

The Cream of Bordeaux

Posted: March 19, 2006  By James Suckling

I just arrived in Bordeaux a few hours ago. And as I was flying into the Mérignac airport from Nice and looking over the landscape of Bordeaux with thousands of acres of vineyards, I couldn’t help but think that most people in the world don’t give a damn about most of wines of the region.

Sleepless in Tuscany Over 2005 Bordeaux

Posted: March 17, 2006  By James Suckling

It was about 3:30 a.m. when I woke up this morning. It was freezing outside and my bedroom didn’t feel much warmer. Tuscany is cold in the winter, even in early March. I couldn’t sleep because I was thinking about 2005 Bordeaux.
