Critique Wine from a favorite Bordeaux producer

Sep 13, 2007
Northern VA suburb of Washington, DC
We regularly enjoy red Bordeaux from the wineries owned by the Alain Aubert family. The 2015 vintage in Bordeaux was terrific, so it's no surprise that this wine is no exception.

The tabletop is white fabric. A medium continuous-light lamp in the top left area was shining through a large diffusion panel. That large modifier in effect made a much larger light source, which in turn made it possible to brighten the gold tones throughout most of the scene. It also added reflections to the bottles that add interest and help define their shape. A polarizer minimized glare on the black letters, making them darker.
