Jane Anson scores the 2020 wines

Decanter’s Jane Anson released around 200 Bordeaux 2020 scores over the weekend, the result of her week of Bordeaux tastings in late April and early May.

Anson awarded four wines a score of 98-100 (posted as just 99 on the website), three of which came from the Right Bank.

Cheval Blanc release

Cheval Blanc 2020 is the only wine in the table above to have been released so far.

During the Liv-ex analysis, they found that a score of 96 from any major critic would place the wine on the Fair Value line, and on any scores higher than 96 the wine would represent value.

Anson awarded the new release 98-100 points, saying the wine, “could go up after tasting in bottle, a potential 100 points”.

Anson will be publishing the full report with an additional 500 to 600 scores.
