Bordeaux 1990 – Tasting Schindlhaus, Söll 24.03.12

Bordeaux 1990 -ein Jahrgang der Superlative. Alles andere wäre untertrieben nach dem gestrigen Tasting im Schindlhaus in Söll. Selten lagen in einem Jahrgang so viele Weine dicht an der Spitze; dazu sind viele Weine gerade mal im ersten Drittel ihrer Entwicklung und werden über die nächsten Jahrzehnte viel Spass machen. Einziger Wermutstropfen: die Preise. Für die besten Super-Seconds der Left Bank muss man schon in den meisten Fällen 250+ EUR hinlegen; Lafite, Margaux & Co sind kaum noch unter 700 EUR zu haben. Allerdings kosten das die Primeurweine aus 2009 und 2010 auch – und  die brauchen noch mindestens 15 Jahre bis zur Trinkreife.
