Bordeaux 2020 En Primeur - "A Trilogy of Excellence"

Having released his first batch of in-barrel scores, alongside broader commentary on the Bordeaux 2020 vintage, James Suckling has become the first major critic to declare 2020 “excellent”. The veteran taster’s initial impressions suggest that this is every bit the worthy successor to the rich, lush 2018 and the beautifully classical 2019.

 

Suckling’s tasting in Hong Kong saw him joined by the legendary consultant Michel Rolland via video, and the internationally celebrated winemaker provide fascinating insights into Bordeaux 2020 En Primeur. Rolland himself believes that 2018, 2019 and 2020 represent a new trilogy of outstanding years, similar in this respect to 1988, 1989 and 1990. We believe that the narrative of a “Trilogy of Excellence” for these three vintages (especially given the devastating reports regarding 2021) will be a highly compelling one. Collectors and investors should take note.

 

We have a reputation in Bordeaux to say the last vintage is the best one...But we did 2018, 2019 and now 2020 … after we did our tastings in the Spring I can say it is a really great vintage. It is different than 2019 with more freshness, more tension, more balance. It’s a good one. Maybe a bit less powerful than 2019 but it made really great wine. I think that we can call it a trilogy now [three consecutive high-quality vintages: 2018, 2019 and 2020].

Alter Ego de Palmer 2020 (6x75cl)

Virtually the “second wine” of Margaux Third Growth Château Palmer, Alter Ego de Palmer is a wine that is more difficult to source than its big brother because of its limited scale of production.

 

2020 saw a -40% decrease in production, meaning it will be an even more challenging task to source this wine in the future. Whilst it remains excellent and consistent as it always does, it scores an excellent 17+/20 from James Lawther MW (jancisrobinson.com), who applauds for its “pure and appetising” character. This is a quintessential Margaux that rightfully deserves a place in any serious wine cellar.
