We’ve been making our way through hundreds of Bordeaux 2020 samples each week in our office in Hong Kong and have found some spectacular bottles. Famous wine estates both on the Right and Left Banks have stood out and St. Emilion is shining through beautifully with a freshness and finesse to the solid fruit and tannin structures in the wines. In this video, you can watch James talk with Pierre Courdurie of Chateau Croix de Labrie in Bordeaux about the 2020 vintage in bottle and the year's "amazing" upside. “Our 2020 Croix de Labrie is the best of the trilogy,” Pierre Courdurie, who owns his tiny biodynamic estate in St. Emilion with his wife, said. “In 2020, we gained energy in the wine” compared with 2018 and 2019, he said.
