Bordeaux 2019 – a very good year by Gavin Quinney of Chateau Ch Bauduc in the Entre-Deux-Mers
Bordeaux 2019 – a very good year 'You're joking – not another one?' No, really, Bordeaux 2019 is a very good to excellent vintage. It wasn't straightforward, with heatwaves, drought and a rainy finish along the way, but Bordeaux enjoyed a long, dry summer and harvest with just enough rain, and no disasters like the late spring frost of 2017 or the significant losses to mildew that some growers experienced in 2018."
