Bordeaux is the world’s largest source of fine wine and the region which dominates the global market. The wine produced here provides numerous benchmarks - for Cabernet / Merlot blends, ageworthy red wine in general, white dessert wine, wine as an investment or collector’s item and simply for good, drinkable wine made to accompany food. Unlike in Burgundy, where vineyards are graded and may be farmed by multiple producers, in Bordeaux the estate, or Château itself is king. Individual Châteaux have become brands and are ranked by various authorities with the price of their wine varying accordingly. For fans of good, drinkable Bordeaux who are not collectors or investors, the nature of the market can be dispiriting. But there is so much quality wine produced that there is always value to be found, and there are still few wine experiences to rival a top bottle of Bordeaux.

Bordeaux - a chosen few from us

Château Lafite-Rothschild 1998

£965

World-renowned and justly lauded, Lafite is peerlessly elegant and one of the world's very finest wines.

Château Lafite prices have soared ahead even of the other First Growths in recent years, largely due to massive demand in China. Regardless of that, Lafite remains one of the world's very finest wines - beautiful, subtle and peerlessly stylish, capable of improving over decades in bottle. It is the pinnacle of Left Bank Bordeaux.
