After weeks of waiting and speculation, Robert Parker’s Bordeaux 2012 scores have finally been unveiled. The critic affirms that 2012 is not a great vintage, but ‘it is an excellent one in Pomerol, Pessac-Leognan and for some St Emilions.’

His top-scoring wines of the vintage are shown below.

Once again, Parker stresses the importance of dropping prices, something that is vitally important if producers are to re-ignite interest in Bordeaux futures. While some chateaux, such as Angelus and Pavie, have ignored the market’s pleas for reasonable pricing, other 2012s offer relatively good value for money.
