Welcome to my Bordeaux website!

 

00Bordeaux has always been my favorite wine destination because of its many different styles.

I've visited Bordeaux many times - first trip took place in 1984, followed by trips in 1985 (during harvest), 1987, 1988, 1990 and 1993. Since 1995 I've visited Bordeaux every year in May/June, but twice in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 (visiting in March/April during primeur and in September/October during harvest).

In 2015, I've visited Bordeaux three times  (for the first time!) - during primeur weeks, second time in June (Vinexpo) and lastly during harvest in September/October.

Since 2002 and starting with vintage 2001, I've participated every single year in Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux primeur tastings of new vintage for invited journalists in March/April.

My impressions and tasting notes from all the visits are continuosly published on the website plus impressions and tasting notes from events held in Copenhagen.

My website is independent, non-profit and it costs nothing to check it out. No advertisements and no sponsor.  Main purpose of this website is to share my impressions and TNs with fellow wine-lovers. Enjoy!
