Bordeaux 2017 En Primeur
Our buying and private client teams travelled widely across the region of Bordeaux to form an understanding of where the quality is to be found in the soon to be released 2017 vintage.
The style of the wines is classical in a positive sense, low alcohol (often under 13.5%) bright pure fruit, fresh minerality and ripe but structured tannins. Those to look out for achieved optimal ripeness and resisted extracting heavily or overly oaking. In essence, the wines that achieved balance and comfort in their own skin.
As we eagerly await the wines release for sale, please read through our Bordeaux 2017 vintage report, and if we have whet your appetite sufficiently, complete your wishlist – which features the best 40 or so wines in our opinion - to be one of the first to know about specific wines once they are available.
