Bordeaux 2018 En Primeur
Bordeaux 2018 En Primeur 17th April 2019 in Fine Wine

The superb 2018 vintage in Bordeaux was very much the result of two diametrically opposed periods – a very wet first half of the season, with just enough dry weather to allow flowering to happen smoothly, which on the one hand lead to the loss of part of the crop through mildew but, crucially, replenished water tables.

As 2019 continues apace, Mr.Wheeler’s fine wine department has continued to grow and indeed, flourish since the turn of the year. The worldwide release of 2017 Burgundy was met with keen demand from Merchants and private buyers alike. The vintage offered a sensationally supple, modern classic of a year and was equally successful for both pinot noir and chardonnay across the length of the Côte d’Or and Chablis.

2016 Bordeaux: Now we're talking!
2016 Bordeaux: Now we're talking! 15th May 2017 in Fine Wine

I recently had the opportunity to attend a vertical tasting of Bordeaux from the 2016, 2015 and 2014 vintages (the term ‘vertical tasting’ always prompts some amusement amongst non-wine people – as if the tasting might at some point become horizontal if it goes on too long!)

The tasting included such luminaries of the region as Montrose, Pontet-Canet, Canon and Rauzan-Ségla – to name but a few (it’s a tough job etc..etc..) and proved to be a fascinating vintage comparison.
