Bordeaux 2010: 300 Top Reds, with Price Guide

I’ve sifted through all the red barrel samples that I scored over 85 points out of 100 and here are my 300 or so favourites (top down), from over 600 tasted in April 2011. Of other leading wines on the Right Bank, I’ve yet to taste Chateau Lafleur in Pomerol and, in St-Emilion, the wines of my friend Jonathan Maltus (including Le Dome and Teyssier), Valandraud, Tertre Roteboeuf and Pavie Decesse.  On the Left Bank, I should go to Boyd Cantenac, Pouget, Pedesclaux and Sociando Mallet.

I have published them here for my April e-newsletter, shortly before Robert Parker publishes his scores. I’ve yet to look at any others but I’m sure we’ll all agree to disagree. As a price guide, I have included the En Primeur price, in sterling from the UK trade, of the same Chateau LAST year for their 2009 – another great, and possibly better, vintage. Do not expect prices to fall when prices are released over the coming weeks and months.

    Hi Gavin

    You manage to get there in the end …going all through those wines….how's the anorak 😉

    I agree with you on many things and i especially agree that overall I think the 2009 vintage is better than the latest from Bordeaux! Well done and keep smiling. Nick

  2. Milo

    Wow Gav, that could mean 260 odd wines over 90 points, how does that compare to last year? Would love to see your points comparisons if that's easy to do. Hope all is well, Milo
