2014 Bordeaux Vintage

The 2014 vintage. It’s a better than classic vintage with good wines made in the Medoc (left Bank). The key here is ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The Merlot’s were fine in the majority of the right banks areas but suffered on the left bank.

The wines from the Medoc, Haut Medoc and Listrac Medoc have good fruit and ripe round tannins and will be great to drink in a decade. The stars of the vintage arise from the communes of St Julien and St Estephe. The wines in the majority from Margaux and Pauillac are good as well. In the left bank the wines are below par for the vintage with issues with the Merlot which dominate the blends.
