Pessac-Leognan, Graves & Bordeaux Blanc sec 2021: ‘best whites since 2017’

Pessac-Leognan, Graves & Bordeaux Blanc sec 2021: ‘best whites since 2017’

As we are beginning to see – and I anticipated – the highly heterogeneous reds of the 2021 Bordeaux vintage are already dividing opinion. However their white counterparts are not. These are truly excellent and, in many cases, exceptional and unique wines – and they are widely seen and duly celebrated as such.

St Estephe & Haut-Medoc: left-bank Merlot ‘a tough and tricky proposition’

St Estephe & Haut-Medoc: left-bank Merlot ‘a tough and tricky proposition’

It might seem odd to continue my series of 2021 Bordeaux en primeur profiles with a single article on the appellations of Haut-Médoc and St-Estèphe – we typically think of these as at the southern and northern fringes of the Médoc respectively that don’t exactly go together.

Pessac-Leognan & Graves rouge 2021: ‘impressive… but patchy’

Pessac-Leognan & Graves rouge 2021: ‘impressive… but patchy’

At the risk of stating the rather obvious, Pessac-Léognan and the Graves were not the easiest places to produce red wine in the 2021 vintage.

Eleanor of Aquitaine: Rebel Queen of the Middle Ages

Eleanor of Aquitaine: Rebel Queen of the Middle Ages

The following is a speech I gave at Kensington Palace in May 2022, during an evening hosted by Château d’Issan celebrating 870th anniversary of the wedding, held in Poitiers Cathedral in 1152, between Eleonor of Aquitaine and Henry, Duke of Normandy at the time of their marriage, soon after crowned King Henry II of England. It has long been believed that Château d’Issan (or wine from the Seigneuries de Cantenac, Lamothe-Cantenac, as it was then known) was served at the wedding. A recent discovery by Emmanuel Cruse of a 1242 wine sale from these lands to the English crown adds credence to the story.
