[15/04/2021] CHÂTEAU FLEUR CARDINALE has created a mini-site dedicated to their 2020 vintage, where you can find all the information about this vintage. The estate is testing in particular “two 750-litre Tava amphoras in which we aged old-vine Merlot and Cabernet Franc.”
[13/04/2021] The Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux has produced videos in partnership with a large number of properties so that they can present their 2020 vintage to you! You can find all 128 videos here.
[06/04/2021] The DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER has already sent us the presentation of their 2020 vintage: “This ” warm year ” type vintage but with a magnificent freshness preserved, promises us rich, powerful, concentrated, silky, elegant wines with good tension, in white as well as in red.”
[18/03/2021] The G DE GUIRAUD was released a few weeks ago, so the estate released one of the first vidéos about the 2020 vintage. This wine also celebrates with this vintage its ten years being certified Organic.
The properties will be able to welcome you for their tastings, but please get in touch your BT contacts as soon as possible, as places are very limited in order to respect sanitary standards.
The properties also give us the possibility to send you samples of their 2020 vintages: contact us quickly so that we can send them your requests.
[12/03/2021] As we did last year about the 2019 vintage, we would like to keep you informed about the latest news from the Bordeaux vineyards and especially about the 2020 Primeurs Campaign.
Good news! The experience of the 2020 vintage has taught us to organize better! Aware of the impossibility of gathering to taste the new vintage together, the UGCB has decided to split the tastings around the world.
We already know that the tastings will take place in :
- Zurich, April 26
- Shanghai, April 26
- Brussels, April 26 & 27
- Bordeaux, April 26, 27, 28 & 29
- Frankfurt, April 27
- Hong-Kong, April 27
- Paris, April 27 & 28
The list of the Crus present during these tastings is not yet final, but you should be able to discover the wines of more than a hundred properties, as each year.
Other organizations, such as the Alliance des Crus Bourgeois or the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux, should also set up tasting sessions, but to date, they have not yet communicated anything to us. We will keep you informed via our Pimeurs article!
Moreover, you will be delighted to learn that all the properties we met at the beginning of the year are organizing themselves to be able to welcome you during the week of April 24 to 29, in small groups of 5 people, unless the sanitary norms change.
The 2020 vintage seems to be very promising in terms of quality, but unfortunately the volumes may not be there…
Anyway, we are looking forward to finally tasting this new vintage, but above all, to be able to taste together these nectars that bring us together!
