Jancis Robinson MW touches on the subject of Bordeaux 2007. A "quite extraordinary" vintage, she says, but one that is the "polar opposite" of the 2003 vintage, which was produced amidst a heatwave. Robinson commends the whites but believes the reds are characterised by their lack of "alcohol, acid, ripe tannins and flavour". And her final verdict on the 2007 red Bordeaux? Drink early, as the "most positive thing to be said with certainty about the 2007 red Bordeaux is how brilliantly some producers have dealt with the most trying vintage many of them have ever known".
