Bordeaux 2018

Following a week of tasting in Bordeaux, where Liz was welcomed by our long-standing suppliers and enjoyed a raft of tastings with Chateaux owners, Liz has prepared a vintage report which you’ll find online. https://www.enprimeur.co.nz/report

There have been a few early releases, including Chateau Angelus; which you’ll find online now. We expect our first full offer early next week.

It’s an excellent vintage, though not homogenous in quality across the region. It’s also a year that can’t be defined as a Cabernet year, nor Merlot, or Left Bank vs Right Bank. The consistency of one appellation did stand out for me, the wines from Saint-Julien are very good this year.
