Bordeaux 2021

Red Bordeaux

Following three hot, sunny vintages, we’re pleased to report 2021 has seen a return to a more classical style of wine. A weeklong visit in May to taste the newly released vintage demonstrated the quality of winemaking to be found, with many top Châteaux producing elegant and structured, red-fruited wines, to be enjoyed in the coming years.

White Bordeaux

‘Among the best Bordeaux Blanc we have ever tasted!’ Stephen Crosland, Tanners Buying Director

 There can be no doubt that 2021 is a stellar vintage for the dry whites of Bordeaux. All over the region, we found electric Sauvignon Blancs bursting with ripe summer fruits complemented by rich honeyed Semillon notes.

Below you will find a list of the white wines from this outstanding year in the knowledge they will provide great drinking pleasure when they are shipped. Stephen Crosland, Tanners Buying Director was effusive in his praise of these wines and we are in agreement that this is a fantastic vintage for White Bordeaux and not to be missed!

If ever there was a vintage to buy white Bordeaux, 2021 is it, drinkers of fine white wines will not be disappointed in the slightest.
