Bordeaux EP 2018

After speaking directly with producers and visiting countless châteaux in Bordeaux over the first week of April 2019, there are certainly great wines to be had. Visit our blog Bordeaux Chronicles to get an in-depth understanding of our trip and the 2018 En Primeur vintage. 2018 produced good white wines and outstanding reds throughout the region. Overall, it is definitely a red wine vintage, while the white and sweet wines proved a bit more challenging. This year was one of extremes with an unprecedented wet start to the year followed by a significant onset of mildew that drastically reduced yields, particularly in vineyards managed organically. It was due to the wet weather and some hail, as well as some ongoing unfortunate consequences of the frost in 2017, that the yields were quite low for many producers. While these factors greatly impacted the quantity, they did not affect the quality. Despite the challenges, all the châteaux that we visited declared it an outstanding vintage. And after a full week of tasting and touring, 2018 is looking like an exceptional year. The current trends we have seen, move away from over-extraction, these ripe, warm wines when handled carefully, will bring decades of drinking pleasure.
