The annual Bordeaux tasting by the Institute of Masters of Wine brings together 100 or so of the best wines of Bordeaux four years after the vintage. Most of the Médoc Cru Classés (including 1st growths) are there, as well as top producers of Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and Sauternes and Barsac. Four years on is a useful and relevant stage to taste, as the wines – though young –  have settled into their final skin. The market is driven by En Primeur tasting scores of infant (foetal?) wines, but tasting at this stage is much more relevant for wine lovers.
