I have just returned from the vineyards of Bordeaux after tasting the miraculous vintage of 2016.
In the longest growing season for many years which started with a very wet spring it is indeed a miracle that good wine was made.
In a couple of cases, the Chateaux seem to have made their best wine ever (Figeac and La Conseillante on the left bank), however most Chateaux have made good wines, some the best for several years but these are not in the class of ‘09 or ‘10.
The First growths have all performed well this year and with the fine wine market having come off the bottom of the last few years it may be a good time to buy.
If you would like to buy this year, please do let us have your wish list so we may act quickly on your behalf to secure wines for you. Please email your wish list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
