Product Details

Early days for the 2020 vintage but signs are of aromatic, concentrated wines, quite big in structure with freshness and balance. The wines of 2019 are very concentrated, fresh, ripe and plentiful all in all a very well-regarded vintage. 2018 was a very good vintage in the end but mildew, hail, and a heatwave all served to reduce yields. The harvest across the region took place in near ideal conditions. 2017 is good in terms of quality but very short on quantity, following frosts in the Spring that decimated certain properties. 2016 is a worthy successor to 2015, on a par qualitatively and looking very promising across all wine types. A hot summer but with cool nights has produced wines with fruit and freshness. 2015 is exceptionally good across the region for reds, especially the Right Bank, Pessac-Léognan, dry whites (better for Sauvignon than Sémillon) and sweeties: it is certainly the best vintage since 2010. 2014 is a very good Cabernet vintage, particularly in the Médoc where the wines are fresh with fine tannins. Overall, ripeness levels are good and so are quantities. The 2013 and 2012 vintages were not particularly easy for the Bordelais, requiring dedication in the vineyard and modern techniques in the winery. Plenty of attractive short and medium-term wines have been made, but yields are low. Like 2008, 2006 and 2001, the 2011s are fresh, well-balanced wines of good quality for the mid-term. 2010 is a truly great vintage, the wines having concentrated fruit and complexity together with the tannic structure needed for long life – and 2009, without extremes of weather, now being spoken of as one of the very best of recent times: approachable early, yet with the density and structure to last.
