6 x 75cl * Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux in 2020 seems to have all the freshness that made the outstanding 2016 so appealing, but also combines the warmth and accessibility of vintages like 2009 - we can't get enough of this vintage, even if volumes are largely down. 

 "Concentrated, with impact and punch. It has presence and barely takes a beat through the mid palate, as there is such a wall of blackberry and bilberry fruits. A brambly hedgerow feel, hard to argue with - but be aware that there is heat also; and this is a hedonistic wine. Harvest from 7th to 29th September. Drinking Window 2023 - 2036". 92/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com

Journalists' scores: James Suckling (96-97), Robert Parker (91-93+), Matthew Jukes (18.5+), Jancis Robinson (17+)

Please note that prices are in-bond and exclude VAT, which are payable when the wines land in spring/summer 2023.
