Jancis Robinson

Ladies Jancis Robinson and Julia Harding, along with 2 Masters of Wine Jeannie Cho Lee and Fiona Morrison gave me my first 17?/20.
Jancis preferred Virginie (noted 16+) and Fiona pointed out that we have never done better with Valandraud (as we also thought) (better than 2005- 1995 – 1998).

Tough to get a higher note as opposed to the Grand Jury Europeen where notes are given collectively.
In any case, she put a correct note and a question mark.
As for my other wines :
Bel Air Ouÿ 15.5
Clos Badon Thunevin 16
La Dominique 17 (well deserved)
Fleur Cardinale 17 (goes to show how good her palate is)
Le Clos du Beau Père 16
La Commanderie de Mazeyres 16
Fayat-Thunevin à Pomerol 15.5
