Southwold 2013 - Margaux and St Julien

Tuesday, 29th January 2013 by Stephen Browett

The commune of Margaux produces wines that tend to exude charm more than power. If you are looking for top class Bordeaux which is elegant and stylish then Margaux is the place for you.


Southwold 2013 - Graves

Monday, 28th January 2013 by Stephen Browett

Today we move to the Graves – or Pessac-Léognan to be precise. This is one of my favourite regions of Bordeaux and one which I see as a half-way point between the left bank and the right bank.


Southwold 2013 - Saint Est├Ęphe

Friday, 25th January 2013 by Stephen Browett

From the plummy opulence of Pomerol we now move to the Cabernet-Sauvignon based wines of Saint Estèphe.

We selected the top 11 wines of the commune for this flight and also put in Sociando Mallet. This Northern Médoc property has long been regarded as making wines of classed growth quality and it’s certainly very similar to St Estèphe in style.


Southwold 2013 - Pomerol

Thursday, 24th January 2013 by Stephen Browett

The appellation of Pomerol is one of the smallest in Bordeaux. Within the appellation there are hundreds of tiny properties and even a 1000- case-a-year Château would be regarded as being one of the larger producers.


Southwold 2013 - St Emilion

Tuesday, 22nd January 2013 by Stephen Browett

First up at Southwold 2013 were the 2009 Saint Emilions. And what a lot of them there were! We tasted about 75 wines from this village as well as a few “ringers” from neighbouring appellations.

Every year in January, for over 30 years, some of the leading figures in the British wine trade have assembled in the sleepy town of Southwold for a comprehensive tasting of the latest Bordeaux vintage to be physically released onto the market
