2016 Bordeaux Vintage Assessment and Tasting Notes

“A Humming Vintage”

The mood in Bordeaux this week was nothing short of buzzing. The wines at many estates were shockingly good, and will probably be regarded as the new benchmark. I, for one, never expected to witness, so soon, a vintage that could broadly challenge 2010 for its class and elegance, and 2009 for its sheer voluptuousness. This truly could be a miracle vintage!

I say “could be” because one never knows how the maturation will develop. As Charles Chevalier of Chateau Lafite Rothschild reminded, as I was getting carried away after having just tasted his great range of wines, 'this is our new baby, we are all excited but we can't judge or predict too much at this stage'

No such restraint at Ducru Beaucaillou, proclaiming a vintage of Biblical proportions!

One of our favourite Bordeaux suppliers commented, “this is a great year…to be a negotiant!”
