2011 Bordeaux – Too many to mention

2011 Bordeaux – Too many to mention

It seems that Bordeaux have decided that it’s simpler just to dump all the wines on the market and let everyone sort it out for themselves, so here we go – not much we can say about each one individually, there simply is not time. In amongst this list are everything from the rare and expensive such as La Mission Haut Brion and Haut Brion, as well as Calon Ségur which is normally difficult to buy en primeur and worth getting in the queue for (quite apart from being a good buy in its own right) right down to some of the best value wines of the vintage from Denis Durantou, including the Montlandrie we wrote so much about last year, and La Petite Eglise and la Chenade, les Cruzelles and Saintem. If you are interested in whites at double the price of a top Montrachet, then we can help with the whites from Haut Brion and la Mission, please ask.

Please consult the website for background info – there are many critics’ notes on the individual wine pages.
