Vintage Report Bordeaux 2021

Vingt-et-un… the luck of the draw.

After two years tasting in gardens and via zoom, our recent primeurs trip marked a welcome return to Bordeaux. In truth, we had no expectations about this vintage. Unusually, chateaux have been playing their cards close to their chests, so we approached with no preconceptions.

A few points on the tastings themselves. The UGC calendar was delayed by about three weeks. This move has been welcomed. The extra time in barrel (even a couple of weeks) makes the wines much easier to assess. Our whole UK Private Client Team, as well as five Buyers, spent four days tasting barrel samples. Some might consider this overkill; however, for an advice-based business like Justerinis, we feel that this is essential. We believe salespeople need first-hand tasting experience in order to inform and advise. This is particularly valuable in vintages like 2021.

2021 threw just about everything at winemakers: frost, mildew, lack of sunshine and the threat of rain at harvest; yet those who manged the conditions and held their nerve have been rewarded with something quite ravishing and unique. It would be easy to write off a vintage like 2021 based on meteorological data, but that would be a disservice. While it requires some attention, there are undoubtedly many wines collectors will want in their cellars.

Bordeaux 2021 Producers

The great classified growths of the Medoc are famed for their impressive chateaux and sprawling vineyards. Although they can sometimes appear more corporate than artisanal, there is usually a passionate and knowledgeable winemaking team behind the scenes calling all the shots. Rock-star Gérants are charged with managing these estates and investing in the future. On the Right Bank there are some prominent chateaux farming on a grand scale as well as many family owned domaines, most notably in Pomerol, which are more akin in size and philosophy to the estates of Burgundy.

Appellations of Bordeaux

The ‘Appellations’ or ‘Communes’ of Bordeaux are split into large geographical areas, the most famous being: St Estephe, Pauillac, St Julien and Margaux in the Medoc, St Emilion and Pomerol on the Right Bank and Pessac Leognan in the Graves. There are also many ‘satellite’ appellations such as: Castillon, Lalande de Pomerol and Fronsac that are capable of producing excellent wines and offer value-for-money.

Grape Types of Bordeaux

The two major varietals grown in Bordeaux are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The former is synonymous with the Right Bank communes of Pomerol and St Emilion, while the latter is the grape of choice in the Medoc. Blending is integral to the wines of Bordeaux, helping to provide balance and complexity. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are also important varietals that can provide perfume and spice to the blender’s palette of flavours.
