BORDEAUX 2016 - THE 100 WORD LOW DOWN

It is worth paying attention to 2016 for two reasons – first the quality is very high, in some cases on par with 2015, 2010, 2009 and 2005; second, because stylistically it is the most classical vintage in a decade – high freshness of fruit and acidity, and lower than normal alcohol. This style delivers something only Bordeaux really can. While 8 of my top 10 wines are perennially very expensive, 2 of them are not. I would be delighted to have any of my top ten value list wines as en primeur buys. Provided release prices are sensible, these make sense.

 

Here is our 2016 Bordeaux En Primeur wines available for order.
