Bordeaux 2015 En Primeur
The 2015 vintage in Bordeaux has produced delicious wines. They are attractive, at times exuberant, with fruit, tannins which are mature and round, and most importantly they are balanced with good freshness which gives them a lovely, juicy character. This is a style which is particularly successful at a modest price level, so there are many wines throughout the region which will provide wonderful drinking at a relatively early age without you having to spend too much money. Regionally we found successes everywhere; although on balance we found more superstars on the right bank!
We are continuing last year's policy of selecting a range of wines which we think are reasonably priced and will offer excellent drinking.
Please ring John, Graham, Robert, Rachel or Robin on 01743 234455 for advice or to purchase.
What excited us about 2014 were the wines that opened below £240 per case, with terrific wines below £100. Sales of these have been very strong and some have outsold the 2009 and 2010s!
John Melhuish our Fine Wine Manager wrote in April 2015:
“At the time of writing, the pound is strong and the prices seem persuasive. They will make delicious drinking relatively young and the best will keep 20 years! They will not be that easy to find in three years’ time and they are very unlikely to be at these prices; the current market is very keen. My advice (and I would say this, wouldn’t I) is to buy as much as you can afford; I have never in my 40 years at Tanners tasted such delicious Bordeaux wines from cask. Further up the scale, well that is a different story, a different Bordeaux and not the story of this offer. Wine is for drinking and these wines will make drinking a delight!”
