Bordeaux 2019 Vintage En Primeur Virtual Tasting  - Thursday 12th July 2020 

Chuck Horn, Maître
Commanderie de Bordeaux in San Francisco 

"We found the 2019 vintage to be absolutely delightful!

Without exception the Bordeaux White (Sauvignon Blanc based) wines were elegant and fantastic wines.

Among the red wines we tasted, the Merlot component was especially successful; the more Merlot in the blend, the more we liked the wine.

Our general conclusion is that the 2019 vintage in Bordeaux, from all parts of Bordeaux, is a great vintage. The wines are delicious, and they have the balance and structure to age gracefully for 10 to 20 years, at least.   

At the same time, we found the 2019 Bordeaux generally very approachable and drinkable now, with nice tannin structure that will allow these wines to age gracefully, and will provide more pleasure in the years to come.

Bordeaux, toujours Bordeaux " 

Some notes on the wines we liked best: 

Citran (rosé) : very pleasant and refreshing. Pale melon color. Very appealing strawberry flavor with enough acid and minerality to keep the palate fresh and make you want another sip. 

Cuvée Clemence : Pleasing and distinctive "oiliness" present on nose and palate. White pears with jus de poire...and a dash of white pepper... We really like this wine. 

Château Roquetaillade-La Grange : Quite oaky, but dark fruits also... This wine was the most mouth-filling, with red-black fruits holding up to big tannins and minerality. My favorite

Château Siran: Bright purple color, fruit and acid well-balanced, a nice big generous wine… Delicious with the steak we had for dinner 2 hours after the tasting.

Château Latour-Martillac: Has the lovely minerality expected of its terroir, well balanced, great structure.

Mauvais Garçon: Looks dark and deep. Rich and delicious on the palate. Lots of dark berries. Long finish. Beautifully balanced.

Château de Myrat: An elegant clear expression of Sauternes.
