There are a whole host of good reasons to visit Bordeaux – fabulous architecture, half the city’s grand buildings are UNESCO listed; the world’s largest reflecting water mirror at the Place de la Bourse; the spectacular Cité de Vin museum; a seemingly infinite choice of restaurants, from the staunchly traditional to the uber-experimental; a burgeoning art scene, from myriad small galleries to the fabulous Museum of Decorative Arts & Design; excellent shopping, from high fashion to famous fleamarkets; stunning St Emilion – to name a few. But for us, of course, it is all about the wine.

Tasting Bordeaux 2018 | St Estephe, Pauillac & St Julien

April 25th 2019

Bdx-2018-3

We start the week of tasting with a trio of visits to Calon Ségur, Montrose & Cos d’Estournel. These have been covered well in a previous blog during our first week of tasting Bordeaux 2018 and were all showing very well this morning. Typical of the vintage, much of Montrose (2/3rds) and Cos (1/3rd) was lost due to mildew, with a sunny July and August saving the châteaux from disaster.
