St-Estèphe 2021 in bottle: Overview plus top-scoring wines

See tasting notes and scores for the top-performing St-Estèphe wines from the difficult 2021 vintage in Bordeaux now that they have been bottled.

A relatively strong performance in 2021 with some great wines produced, particularly those on clay-limestone soils: clear terroir markers show through in the best.

Despite 15% less rain than in 2020, and September temperatures the highest in 100 years, yields were almost identical, with many estates having been spared the spring frosts. Some wines are now displaying quite austere tannins and rustic edges, but there are some highlights, too.
