The World’s Best Bordeaux

The American periodical “Wine Searcher” lists the 10 best Bordeaux of the year. The editor does acknowledge that it may be reductive, when the world of wine is rich in diversity, to focus only on this category of vineyard. “Bordeaux is a strange beast. It waves its reputation for excellence like a battle flag, even though the vast majority of the wine produced there ranges from the merely mediocre to the genuinely awful.”

When it comes to the world’s best wines, Bordeaux is really very good, and the best wine is produced (unfortunately for everyone else) in the very rare Bordeaux estates that create “the perception of universal regional excellence … despite the thousands of hectoliters of proof to the contrary.”
