Bordeaux 2019 Vintage Tasting - Thursday 9th July 2020

Maître Clifton Louis tells us that a group of seven expert tasters, members of the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Denver, met at the Denver Country Club on Thursday 9th July 2020 from 6pm, to hold the Bordeaux 2019 Vintage Tasting. 

This tasting even was a great success! The group comprised of Richard Tolley, Jerry Wrench, Greg Wrench, Brooke Schiffner, Jacquelyn TerHar, Henry Gordon and Michael Banks tasted and evaluated all Bordeaux thirty wine samples.

They found that all the wines were much more approachable at this early stage than any had expected. Most wines had a great sense of freshness and many will be ready to drink wonderfully very early on. They considered the red wines simply outstanding, showing a lot of backbone and strength, but even so very, very approachable, with tremendous freshness. Most of the red wines will be ready to savour soon.

The 2019 vintage will not require years of cellaring before the optimal drinking window opens.

The Commanderie de Bordeaux in Denver thought that the thirty wine samples they received was a truly great selection of wines! 

Here are the wines they picked out as their favourites and some of their comments: 

Chateau Caroline
Fruit forward, well balanced. Great nose, very pleasant, enjoyed this wine very much. 

Chateau Louplac-Gaudiet
A light floral nose and honey sweetness. On the palate very sweet, but a very pleasant Loupiac. 

Chateau Franc le Maine 
Floral nose. Complex and well balanced. WOW! Tannis are slightly light, but still very good balance for this wine. 

Citran - Maison Ginestet
A very light peach colour, almost transparent. White Peach aromas. Very dry on the palate, with very little residual sugar. Light and fresh. An outstanding rosé wine! 

Mauvais Garcon - SAS Thunevin 
A nose of dark fruits and fig, with hints of vanilla. Showing stong tannins, but not overpowering. Well balanced. It would benefit from 3 to 5 years bottle ageing, but it will be a fabulous wine! It is already great to drink now. This is a Big wine!
