Philip Tuck / Master of Wine, MW (United Kingdom)  had a tasting of  6 Wines  from  6 Producers 

Louis Roederer Cristal 1996 (Magnum) Absolutely stunning nose of great complexity, enticement and elegance which evolved beautifully in the glass.  Still lean and elegant as you would expect from the vintage. Immensely satisfying with plenty of time to go although it is difficult to imagine how it can continue to improve.  For once a Cristal that exceeds expectations!. Impressive.  The bottles tasted were also excellent.  19.5

BORDEAUX VINTAGE 2016 / Tasting "en primeur" is a challenge every year. The wines tasted are showing a tendency only and it is still the beginning of a longer process of evolution and maturation in the barrels. There might be some changes during the next year and a half until the wines will be bottled, but already today the tendency is quite clear. For most of the red wines it will be an outstanding vintage, a vintage for Cabernet, old vines, limestone and clay soil. It was a challenging year for the vintners. An incredibly wet spring was worrying the winegrowers and at the beginning of June, the spirits were down. However warm and dry weather between June 3 and June 11 creating an close to ideal situation for the flowering and good weather conditions starting in mid June changed the nature of the vintage. The fine weather continued into July and August. The month of August was featuring hot weather and a remarkable amount of sunshine but the absence of rain let to water stress. Heavy rain in mid September set an end to water stress and when the sun returned on September 20 the vintage was saved as there was excellent weather till to the end of the harvest. The effects were various. the white wines are on a good quality level and display fruit and flavour but the acidity is lower than in previous vintages and the white wines show an opulent and rather soft style. The noble sweet wines are extremely pure and are more on the rich and powerful side than on the freshness. For the red wines originating from the right terroirs and old vines, the vintage an be called outstanding. Water stress was managed well on limestone and clay terroirs, Cabernet varieties did extremely well and old vines found water even during the stressful dry periods of summer. In some few red wines the tannins are slightly harsh, almost bitter, a result of water stress and/or intense extraction. In general the red wines are on an excellent level with an advantage for the left bank, mainly the Médoc area, and the classic great terroirs of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol.

Château Haut-Brion, Péssac-Léognan, France, 1989, 100pts. Perhaps the most harmonious wine I have ever tasted. This wine had it all - just perfect and sensational. This wine is just from another planet!

2010 Parker Coonnawarra Estate First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon, Connawarra

Dark ripe Cabernet nose with leather, plum, mint, strawberry jam. Beautifully textured on palate with juicy sweet fruit, velvety tannins, a certain note of drier fruit like prunes and some woody notes. Classical and aristocratic texture with great complexity and length. Warm, ripe and big, but very finely balanced and precise with a great varietal expression. 95p

"Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level."

John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  had a tasting of  25 Wines  from  22 Producers 

Let’s talk Bordeaux. The Commander brought two gorgeous ‘82s which were both singing. L’Evangile, which is now owned and run by Lafite, and Trotanoy, which is owned and run by the Moueix family (aka Petrus) remain two of the best buys in all of Bordeaux, and these two wines showed why. The L’Evangile had sexy aromas and flavors of plum, olive and chocolate, and while still a bit tight, it was thick and delicious. The Trotanoy was a bit more open, dare I say sexier in its nose, showing blacker fruit and great autum floor action. It may be maturing a touch faster than the L’Evangile, but I found them qualitatively equal. The 1985 Petrus has never been considered a great Petrus, but out of double magnum, it came damn close. It was another sexy Pomerol nose, with more wheat and dust, along with touches of purple marzipan. The palate was rich and beautiful, w ith hints of olive and plum, and richer and more tannic than I expected, probably thanks to the larger format as much as anything else.

"Graham's Vintage 1963 / Power, dimension and real character are all hallmarkes of this most memorable Vintage. Even after 40 years the Graham's 1963 never fails to impress with it superbly balanced components of fruit, tannin and elegance. In 2004, this wine shows elegant rose petal aromas. The flavours are of concentrated caramelised fruit in perfect balance."

Penfolds Grange 2004 / Now here is a challenging wine to review. The reviewers are swooning, the faithful are lining up at the Magill cellar door, even the mainstream press is giving it coverage (great to see, more please). In short, it is a ‘loaded’ wine: A bottle of fermented grape juice that comes so full of preconceptions, myth & mystique that actual tasting notes are redundant with reviewers serve to only agree or disagree with the greatness.

So, at first, I thought I would just not score this, to be a self righteous knob and just rattle off some descriptors and the odd opinion, before leaving a hole where the score would be at the end. But, instead, I sat there trying to work out what, if anything, was wrong with it. Approach a tasting with the idea that all wine is perfect until proven not. Its actually great fun, but also seems counter intuitive with the whole critical tasting idea. In the end, I decided that if you were to hold up a wine as the model for The Ultimate Young South Australian Shiraz, you couldn’t really go wrong with this.

Purple, dark red in colour. Sweet, malted coconut oak, interwoven with really bright red fruit, like a raspberry bounty & just a smidgen of (classic for Grange) VA. Cocoa. Black fruit. Impossibly youthful. Actually, it reminds me a lot of the 2005 Moss Wood on the nose, with it’s surreal, sweet youthful fruit and oak amalgam. Its a purity of fruit and well judged oak at its zenith, and its hard not too love. I think, however, that as a young wine, many European palates would find this too sweet. Leave it for a decade before serving it to the Poms then.

On the palate, well, it is drier, deeper and blacker than the sweet nose, much like 70% dark chocolate. Palate wise its red/black fruit dominant and utterly Penfoldian in its firm, quit sweet tannins. It’s sweet, but so structured and balanced that it feels velvety. Velvety like Burgundy. Effortless softness that is so seductive that you don’t notice the tannins, even though they hang in the background, ready to kick. I think that’s called balance. And it makes this wine the hero that it’s purported to be.

So in the end, in my quest to examine this wines perfection credentials, I really couldn’t find much wrong with it. Perhaps its a bit too sweet, otherwise it really is a brilliant South Australian Shiraz. The only question, perhaps, is whether it is ‘that much’ better than the 04 St Henri. And that question is largely answered by your wallet…97 p

Oliver Bernard / Domaine de Chevalier, Wine Maker (France)  had a tasting of  6 Wines  from  1 Producers 

The decade 2000-2010 produced an unparalleled series of good and great vintages. Everyone familiar with the frequent cold, wet years in the 1960s and 70s will be able to relate to the challenges and uncertainties of weather in the Gironde department and the oceanic depressions that can inundate the vines and jeopardise quality at all times of year.

Those of you who are used to reading this vintage report will recall the 5 prerequisites for a great red wine vintage in Bordeaux:

1-  quick,earlyfloweringconducivetogoodfertilization,satisfactoryyields,andevenripening
2-  the onset of water stress during fruit set to limit the swelling of young berries and define future

tannin content
3-  the definitive stop to vegetative growth before véraison (colour change) due to significant water

4-  completely ripe grapes thanks to optimum photosynthesis in the leaves up until harvest, without

any noteworthy resumption of vegetative growth
5-  mild weather during the harvest making it possible to pick late-ripening plots and varieties

without running the risk of dilution or rot

The 2013 vintage did not conform to any of the five essential factors for a fine red wine vintage due to three reasons: wet spring weather causing late flowering and widespread coulure (shot berries), as well as the violent and sometimes destructive storms in late July/early August that prevented vegetative growth from stopping, and the wet, mild weather in September and October propitious to the development of grey rot both before and during the harvest.

Although a great year was out of the question due to the weather, certain terroirs – thanks to winemaking expertise and a pragmatic, commonsense approach – nevertheless produced small quantities of pleasant red wines i.e. able to please Bordeaux wine lovers.

High quality white wine grapes need different conditions to grow from their red wine counterparts, so 2013 met the parameters for a very good dry white wine vintage thanks to fine weather in July and August, without excessive dryness. Great sweet white wines were also successful in 2013 thanks to the wet, mild autumn, much more favourable to the early, widespread development of Botrytis cinerea than 2012.
