Our comment on
One of my favourite Bordeaux vintages. A classic vintage, i.e. very elegant. Many critics did not expect it to last very well as it was a delight to drink young. However, the 1953 Bordeaux have shown that the most important thing for a wine to be able to age gracefully is balance rather a massive doses of tannins, extract or alcohol. Mouton, Lafite (if variable), Haut Brion are all very good. Margaux can be delicious but is ageing, Latour is not up to its usual class (the 1952 is better). Ducru Beaucaillou, Palmer, Gruaud Larose and Figeac made gorgeous wines of first growth quality. I have also enjoyed Cos, Calon Ségur, Cantemerle, Léoville Las Cases, Domaine de Chevalier and both Pichons.
