Description:

‘2014 Bordeaux is a very good to excellent vintage,’ writes Neal Martin of the Wine Advocate. Its long growing season, which started off with rather difficult weather, ended with an Indian Summer. The wines show ‘freshness, terroir expression, an erring towards red rather than black fruit, crisp and occasionally quite edgy tannins and vivacity’ according to Neal. We taste through all the major appellations, including the likes of Léoville Poyferré and Smith Haut Lafitte and, one of the top wines of the vintage, Vieux Château Certan.
