Bordeaux 2013 highlights the best terroir

March 2014 027

After a morning of tasting the 2013 on the Right Bank my overriding impression is that this vintage is only good on the good terroir. It is also the vintage of Grand “famous architect’s” wineries – Angelus, Montrose and La Dominique!

Here are some of my favorites (I seemed to prefer St Emilion over Pomerol on he whole);

Salle de Dominican in St Emilion Syndicate Tasting of St Emilion, Pomerol and Fronsac

Grand Cru Classé: Grand Corbin, Grand Corbin D’Espagne, Marzelle, Fleur Cardinale, Fonplegade, Fonroque, Pressac, La Grangere,

Grand Cru: Rozier, Haut La Grace Dieu, Béard la Chapelle

Chateau Gazin Pomerol UGC Tasting

Clinet, La Conseillante, La Croix du Gay, Gazin, La Pointe

Château La Dominique ST Emilion UGC Tasting

Couspaude, La Dominique, Beasejour Becot, Clos Fourtet, Troplong Mondot, Canon La Gaffeliere, Figeac

The winery has been designed by Jean Nouvel and is covered on the outside by a shiny red colour. Its terrace is enormous and there is a restaurant serving traditional food for hundreds of covers it seems – very Terrance Conran. Wonderful view of Cheval Blanc, l’Evangile and La Conseillante. That is one way of looking down on your neighbours.
