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.

The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Full Steam Ahead at Mouton-Rothschild

Director Philippe Dhalluin has admirably steered Mouton-Rothschild and its stable of wines to the top of the Bordeaux hierarchy

Posted: March 25, 2015  By James Molesworth

It's been a tumultuous stretch lately at Château Mouton-Rothschild, with a new cellar completed recently, and the passing of the legendary Baroness Philippine. Yet if anything could power forward through rough, it would be the S.S. Mouton-Rothschild, and director Philippe Dhalluin is admirably steering the ship.

After making my first 2014 Bordeaux barrel tasting stop on in the Margaux appellation at Château Palmer, I headed to Château Margaux, where Paul Pontallier says the 2014 grand vin offers plenty of tannins balanced by freshness and acidity.
