Theis Vine Bordeaux tasting at Børsen in Copenhagen

September 6, Theis Vine held the annual Bordeaux tasting at The stock exchange (Børsen) in Copenhagen. This is a really good tasting with the opportunity to try the last vintage of Bordeaux before buying them “en primeur”. It was with excitement that we tasted the new Bordeaux 2016 Vintage, which has already been praised by some wine journalists. The 2014 were good and 2015 even better. In our opinion the general quality of the 2016s were as high as for 2015. Perhaps the top wines of 2015 are better, time will tell. In general we found lots of nice, rather silky fruit and with quite high acidity. The tannins are also quite massive in most examples. We recommend all of you with a wine cellar to invest in many cases of the 2016 for the future. We also tasted some Bordeaux’s from earlier vintages, mostly from 2011 and 2012 which were a bit weaker vintages when it comes to ageing potential. Many of the examples tasted were already showing some maturity, they are actually quite drinkable at the moment, while the 2016s probably will benefit from 10 years or more in the cellar.

In addition to top quality Bordeaux wines the tasting has as usual some high quality Burgundy, Champagnes from Billecart-Salmon, many good Italian and Spanish wines.

If you missed the tasting this year we do recommend you to go next year.

Theis Vine Bordeaux tasting at Børsen in Copenhagen

Theis Vine had, as every year, a wonderful tasting at The stock exchange (Børsen) in Copenhagen a few week ago. Even though there are no Port Wines we must say that it is a really good tasting with opportunity to try the last vintage of Bordeaux. This year the focus was on Bordeaux from 2015 which shows fantastic potential and future! Generally speaking we found lots of nice pure fruit balanced with tough tannins in the wines. We recommend all of you with a wine cellar to invest in many cases of the 2015 for the future. We also tasted some Bordeaux’s from earlier vintages. Among the best were the excellent 2010s from Petit Village and Chateau Pichon Longueville – Baron. We also liked Chateau Leoville Barton and Leoville Poyferre from 2012.

In addition to top quality Bordeaux wines the tasting has the last few years expanded to include some Burgundy wines, Champagnes from Billecart-Salmon and other high quality wines. This year Billecart-Salmon had six vintage champagnes for tasting, among these the fantastic Le Clos Saint-Hilaire 1999. Marvelous!

If you missed the tasting this year we do recommend you to go next year.
