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!”

2016 offered excellent climatic conditions for Sauternes wines; the grapes ripened evenly and noble rot settled in nicely giving a generous and unctuous aromatic experience with nice balance! The blend this year was 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, fermented in 50% new French...

The Grand Vin of Chateau Lynch-Moussas is ever improving! This one seems to be a step above its younger iteration from 2015 though it will need a few years to sand down some of those rough edges!

La Croix de Beaucailou is arguably the second wine of Chateau Ducru Beaucailou, sourced from vines which are slightly further away from the Gironde estuary. These vines do not feel the moderating effect of the water, but by no means produce inferior grapes. The 2016 vintage of La Croix de...

Chateau La Cabanne has slowly been improving over the last couple of decades, with the last two vintages 2016 and 2015 being their best yet! They are no longer lumpy wines with little substance, but carry much more grace, complexity and balance. These are now wines with the potential for...

The second wine of Chateau Cos d'Estournel mirrors many aspects of its elder sibling; its rich aromas and vibrancy. However, it speaks of comfort, relaxation and familiarity rather than posing as an intellectual and sensual challenge. It demands only as much as one is willing to give; a...
