2011 Bordeaux en primeur tasting

Tasted Friday, April 27, 2012 by il_diavolo with 304 views

Introduction

Third year of en primeur at the sampler. As the line-up is quite consistent starting to get some comparators year on year. Like 2010, rauzan segla shaded it as best on the night - though its opulence lends it that way. Lilian ladouys again seems a great QPR with perhaps poujeax as well. Sociando mallet and clerc milon i would own to age as i think they have upside and are interesting.

Flight 1 - Reds (15 Notes)

Flight 2 - Whites (2 Notes)

I only tasted two whites but both suggested to me that the top whites will be very good indeed.

Closing

How to sum it up? Well we always start off ready to 2 finger the bordelais and then realise that actually we quite like how the wine tastes....however giving money away for 2 years when its a near certainty they will be same or cheaper later on, is perhaps too much even for this sucker. But i certainly found wines that appealed as classic drinking once aged.
