5 Bordeaux legends
It is always time to acquire (if you haven’t already done so) a legendary Bordeaux wine.
- Château Cheval Blanc 2019: Given a perfect score twice – 100/100 (Wine Advocate and James Suckling)
- Château Lafite Rothschild 2019: A legendary Pauillac, also awarded 100/100 twice (Wine Advocate and James Suckling)
- Château d’Yquem 2019 (available as a half-bottle, bottle, magnum or Imperial): Probably the greatest Sauternes!
- Château l’Évangile 2020: Without a doubt, the best Pomerol wine in a classic classification, perfectly balanced.
- Château Pontet-Canet 2019 or 2020: Certified biodynamic since 2010, the wine has all the characteristics of a great Pauillac – concentrated and complex aromas of cedar and black fruits.
