I've visited Bordeaux many times - the first trip was in 1984, followed by visits in 1985 (during harvest), 1987, 1988, 1990 and 1993. From 1995 I've visited Bordeaux every year in May/June. From 2000 to 2018 I went to Bordeaux twice, except harvest in 2002 and harvest in 2005 (visiting in March/April during primeur and in September/October during harvest). In 2015 and 2019, I've visited Bordeaux three times - during primeur, the second time in June (Vinexpo) and during harvest in September/October.
Since 2002 and starting with vintage 2001, I've participated every year in Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux primeur tastings of new vintage for invited journalists in March/April.
This is a website about Bordeaux describing harvests, vintages, including chateau profiles and tasting notes. A little chapter about Burgundy is there too. My impressions and tasting notes from every visit in Bordeaux and vertical/horizontal tastings are continuously published.
It's independent, non-profit and it costs nothing to check it out. No advertisements and no sponsor. The main purpose of this website is to share my impressions and TNs with fellow wine-lovers. Enjoy!
