Saint Emilion at Teddington

by | Mar 16, 2015 | Teddington Wine Society | 0 comments

St Emillion was the focus at Teddington Wine Society this month, with a similar line up of wines to the Richmond tastings a couple of weeks before.

Once again the variety of vintages we tasted highlighted the importance of vintage in Bordeaux. The 2010’s were full-bodied, plump and structured, with potential for good ageing.  Whereas the 2012 Capet Guillier was more forward and approachable as befitting the less favourable conditions of that year.

The Chateau La Croizille 2005 eminently showed off the power of this sensational vintage with at least another 10-15 years ageing ahead of it.

We finished off with the utterly delicious Chateaux Laville 2009, a gloriously unctuous and rich Sauternes.

“Throughout the 17 years I have attended Tim’s wine tasting events, he has continued to deliver his extensive knowledge of wine and wine-making with great charm, and lots of humour, making the evenings not only informative, but also great fun. In the course of an average year, the tastings cover a kaleidoscope of different wine themes – interesting and entertaining for all, novices and experts alike. And the wines taste pretty good too!”

“We have been going to Teddington Wine Society events for a number of years. Tim runs the evenings with bonhomie and humour and wears his considerable knowledge lightly. The evenings are great fun, the wines are always a little bit different and help to expand knowledge and tasting horizons.”

“I have attended the Richmond Wine society for over ten years and always enjoyed Tim’s self-effacing style and gentle humour. His knowledge is globally eclectic and presented in a clear, interesting and always stimulating way. Every guest I have taken there has enjoyed the evening immensely. Tim also offers a wide range of wines to buy and my red cellar has provided great pleasure to my own dinner guests.”

“I’ve been enjoying Tim’s tastings for over 20 years – he is a great teacher, raconteur and wine expert. He is seriously passionate about his wine, but there is nothing serious about his tastings, which are always informal and relaxed. A lovely way to spend an evening and enjoy some fantastic wines.”
