The release to the final consumer of the 2021 Bordeaux is approaching the middle of next year For our customers who will receive their bottles in 2024,
We are going to summarize the character of the harvest in Pauillac and Saint-Julien, they are two irregular appellations, several vinification options have been taken by the “Chateau” in this slightly complicated harvest
It was rather necessary to be in the same direction as the vintage, that is, not to go looking for tannins that were not completely ripe, since we have some wines that have not reached their optimal level of maturation, the wines are a bit serious in its structure at the beginning, but they have been evolving very well, like many of the more continental and fresh vintages, wines with race and typicity of the vintage
The Cabernet Sauvignon great grape of 2021
We remember a summer that was a little lacking in sun, temperatures that were not very high, maturity took a while to arrive, but luckily the good weather in the second part of September and October has allowed the Cabernet Sauvignon to reach maturity. The best Bordeaux wines 2021 are generally dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this grape with a lot of energy, always looking for precision, a finish with juicy fruit and slight salinity
Our best primeurs from Pauillac and Saint Julien
We find these characteristics in the best: Château Mouton Rothschild, sublime, Château Lafite Rothschild is atypical, for its assemblage of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, a lot of race and delicacy, it is phenomenal
But many other wines follow this line, of precision of fruit and sweetness: Château Lynch-Bages. On the Saint-Julien side, Château Talbot stands out, returning to its best level, an unctuous wine, with structure, what is missing in some of those 2021 because it is a little thin
Personally, I have also been excited by the following chateaus: Château Beychevelle, Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, Chateau Leoville Poyferre, and it will be an interesting vintage in second wines due to its quick accessibility like Clos du Marquis.
The aromas of 2021 are changing to measures
It is a 2021 vintage from Pauillac and Saint Julien who is going to reserve good surprises, you will have to try the wines once they are physically available because they are wines that are going to grow in intensity, they are going to gain more body with aging, if you have not yet purchased their advanced wines 2021 you will find all the wines on our website, at attractive prices, and they will be delivered to you in a few months.
