Critics Corner

Who are the critics?

Bordeaux relies upon the critic scores prior to releasing their wines En-Primeur. We are only concerned with offering a panel of critics’ who will present an unbiased viewpoint. We opt for critics who have many years of experience, but above all for us, bravery is of fundamental importance. Simply put, they have to write the truth, regardless of past reputations. There is nothing worse than reading a review from a critic who is overtly respectful of the same wine year in, year out. Lastly, and something we take for granted, a good palate. This reason alone is why you should review several critics’ notes for each wine; do not rely upon one, as their individual preference may be the complete opposite of your own. My advice would be to find a balance between several critics and please do not hesitate to contact me for a candid assessment…

The critics we are following throughout this years campaign are as follows:


James Suckling

Jancis Robinson

Neal Martin
