All three styles of Bordeaux 2015 wine - reds, dry whites and sweet whites - are a success, which hasnt been the case since 2005. But there are standouts - specifically Margaux, Saint-Émilion and Pessac-Léognan. - Roger Voss (Wine Enthusiast)







A brief overview of the vintages since 2009...

2014 Bordeaux Wine Great vintage for the Cabernet Sauvignon based wines of the Medoc. The wines are especially strong the further north you go, with Pauillac and St. Estephe producing really good wine, followed by St. Julien and Margaux. The wines are soft, ripe and display silky tannins with good concentration. Due to their forward style, while age worthy, many of the wines will be fun to drink early. The vintage is mixed in St. Emilion and moderate in Pomerol, with many wines possessing a slightly dilute character. Its a good vintage for dry, white Bordeaux wine, in a bright, acidic style. Sauternes and Barsac was also successful.
Drink now or hold, 92 Pts. Nejaime's has carefully cherry-picked some of the best of this vintage for you.

2013 Bordeaux Wine  Light, early drinking year with a focus on red fruits. St. Julien and Pomerol are the top two appellations. Dry white Bordeaux was also successful. The best wines of the vintage are the sweet Bordeaux wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Enjoy the red wines on the young side.
Drink now, 83 Pts.

2012 Bordeaux Wine  A classic vintage, in a good way. The best wines come from Pomerol and St. Emilion. However Pomerol is favored as the Merlot for most estates fully ripened. The vintage was also successful in Pessac Leognan, but more difficult in the Medoc, as the Cabernet Sauvignon did not achieve ripeness. While the dry white wines are of high quality, Sauternes was a disaster. Some of the top estates were forced to declassify their entire crop, including Chateau dYquem. Most of the red wines will drink well young.
Drink now, 89 Pts. Nejaime's has carefully cherry-picked some of the best of this vintage for you.

2011 Bordeaux Wine 
An average year with the best red wines coming from Pomerol and St. Emilion that could be described as classic. The wines are fresh, bright and acidic and focus more on red fruit than darker berries. Its another very successful year for Sauternes. For most wines, its an early drinking vintage.
Drink now, 85Pts.


2010 Bordeaux Wine Very good year for wines from all Bordeaux appellations. Tannic, powerful, structured and rich, the best wines need 15-20 or more years to develop. Margaux, Pauillac, Pessac Leognan and St. Emilion are the best regions. Sauternes was also successful.
Hold, 97 Pts. Nejaime's strongly invested in this vintage.

2009 Bordeaux Wine Great year with a wonderful style. The wines are ripe, sexy and lush. Pomerol, Pauillac, Pessac Leognan and St. Estephe produced the best Bordeaux wines.
Hold, 97 Pts. Nejaime's strongly invested in this vintage.

Cheers!
