BORDEAUX 2021 | CRU WINE HIGHLIGHTS
Despite the early consensus of the vintage being one of inconsistency, based on the tricky growing season, critics praised many fantastic wines that were reminiscent of 1990s Bordeaux that will delight devotee collectors and drinkers. Below are a handful of estates which performed particularly well in 2021 and warrant consideration for any fine wine collection.
- Heavy investment with no expense spared from Chanel Group has resulted in Canon consistently scoring in the high 90s. The trend continued with the 2021 and received highly impressing critiques from all the critics
- Impressively consistent with quality and still very keenly priced, Leoville Barton is a classic, elegant, and ever reliable drinking claret
- With a point or two behind the likes of neighbour Pavie, and at a fraction of the price, Troplong Mondot offers great value for money from an estate on an upward trajectory. A seriously strong contender for promotion to 1er Grand Cru Classé A status later this year!
- A smart buy for sweet lovers is the Doisy Daëne L’Extravagant. With very little sweet wines produced, yet some scores surpassing the clarets, the Sauternes are being spoken of highly. Inevitably due to low supply, these will become incredibly hard to track down in the years to come when in their prime drinking windows
- Hailed as a ‘flying fifth’, Lynch Bages is a hugely popular estate with Pauillac lovers with high demand and an impressive secondary market performance
- Perhaps the greatest Second Growth, Leoville Las Cases have produced another stunning grand vin this campaign, offering a multidimensional drinking experience
