30 May - I've decided there is not enough interest in Bordeaux 2011 to keep this article at the top of our list. Look out for Walter Speller's suggestions next week as to what you should instead be thinking of buying for top quality drinking in 10 years' time - JR

6 May - Just to remind you that, owing to Nick's scheduled gut operation, from which he is making excellent progress now, I was unable to go to Bordeaux to taste the 2011 primeurs. Julia Harding MW went instead and did a first-class job, publishing an awe-inspiring set of tasting notes in record time - JR

Here's a guide to our coverage of Bordeaux 2011, complete with Julia's picture of one delighted putto at Ch La Mission Haut-Brion.

Please note that the tasting article titles will link to the relevant article only once they are published, but there are already 16 other, more general articles listed below the list of tasting articles.
