This week we are going to talk about Bordeaux 2020. The Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux was recently in NYC with over 100 wineries pouring their new 2020 vintage. I got a chance to speak with six different wineries from different regions in Bordeaux and the consensus is the 2020 vintage is excellent, the third in a trilogy of great vintages after 2018 and '19. This was a walk around tasting with hundreds of people and wineries in midtown Manhattan. It was a little noisy and frenetic, but the wineries were able to take some time out to tell us about their wines and the vintage. We spoke to Chateau Beychevelle in St Julien
Chateau Coutet, the sweet wine from Barsac
Domaine de Chevalier in Pessac Leognan
Chateau Cantenac Brown in Margaux
Chateau La Gaffeliere in St Emilion
And Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Pauillac.
