Bordeaux

To our minds, Bordeaux still produces the best value Cabernet and Merlot-based wines in the world! Why? Because alongside the exalted Left Bank châteaux of Margaux, Pauillac, St- Julien, St-Estèphe and Pessac-Léognan and the Right Bank’s Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, there are tremendous sites and keen producers of claret in the Médoc, Haut-Médoc, Côtes de Bordeaux and AOC Bordeaux areas. We spend much time seeking them out. There has also been a noticeable change in winemaking styles over the past few years as many of the very late-harvested, heavily extracted and oaked wines are giving way to what we see as more balanced, fresher styles with a more restrained use of oak. It’s also worth noting that the high prices which garner all the headlines are only achieved by a very few and that the vast majority of the many small properties
struggle to pay their way.

Dry white Bordeaux - made predominantly from Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc - is somewhat overlooked but in Pessac-Léognan and Graves, there are oak-aged wines of great complexity. The glorious sweet wines of Sauternes and Barsac are the result of tiny yields, a lot of work in the vineyard and a reliance on nature so it can be very difficult for producers with a declining market for sweet wines. Many are looking at producing increasing amounts of dry whites.
