Very quickly (it’s nearly the weekend after all), I’ve just posted our Bordeaux 2007 “wish list”. Basically, its the list of wines we liked the most from our tastings, and our en primeur offer will be drawn from this list.
I draw your attention to the important caveat that we will only actually buy those wines where we consider the price to be right. We’re confident the wines on the list will offer great pleasure for Bordeaux drinkers, with the added advantage that they’ll need considerably less time in the cellar than the more structured ’05s and ’06s, but being realistic it’s almost certainly a much longer list than we will eventually offer.
Note also, there’s some dry whites on the list! The wines are fantastic (Jancis Robinson has rave reviews, although you’ll need a subscription), but it’s something of a departure for us, so your feedback on likely demand here would be gratefully received. Comment here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be posting a detailed vintage report on Monday, so watch this space!
