Those readers who already receive our email updates will know that the 2009 Bordeaux releases are coming thick and fast now. If you have any interest at all get signed up straightaway or there’s a danger you’ll miss the party.
Since this morning two Majestic favourites have come out: Chateau la Lagune and Chateau Talbot. We’ve bought as much as we physically can of both these wines, but they won’t be around for long. Both are archetypal ‘British’ clarets, without the cloying extrovert fruit demanded by the US market but with a refreshing clarity. Both will be superb drinks in a few years and, in the context of the vintage, are excellent value.
