This tasting  will be based around tasting and discussing three recent vintages for red Bordeaux, by looking at:

  • Wines which are accessible – “lunchtime clarets”, i.e. modest red Bordeaux – rather than rock stars; and
  • Developments during the last twenty years: Left Bank, Right Bank; relationships abroad; styles of wine; new permitted grapes; sustainability and climate change.

I’ve chosen wines from the current Majestic list to illustrate the following vintages:

  • 2016 – Left Bank (e.g. Médoc, Cabernet Sauvignon predominant)
  • 2015 – Right Bank (St Émilion or Pomerol)
  • 2010 – either.
