Thibault Pontallier’s words, “An open vintage, not a shy one”, beautifully sum up the style of the wonderful wines from the hugely exciting 2016 vintage. This is a year where the wines are full of life and vibrancy. The fruit content is as pristinely pure as I can ever remember tasting at such an early stage. The tannins, in the words of the oenologists, are the equal to the great 2010 under analysis, but are totally wrapped up in the richness of their fruit.

Last night’s party at Twins was splendid. A beautiful evening with some exceptional wines, all in large formats; our favourite! Standouts from the line up, which included Chateau Margaux 2011, Pavie 98, Rauzan Segla 88, Pape Clement 95, were an Imperial of Cheval Blanc 2006 followed by an Imperial of Ornellaia 2006……not a bad way to start the trip!
