2016 Bordeaux En Primeur

Earlier this month I led our teams from the UK & the USA to numerous chateau tastings of over 500 of the top Bordeaux. This was my 32nd year of tasting barrel samples and it has been undeniably one of the most impressive vintages in all my years of coming to Bordeaux. Many of you know we own Chateau Carignan in the Cotes de Bordeaux, and as such I was present during the buildup to the harvest. I therefore experienced firsthand the weather conditions approaching and during the harvest. Unlike 2015, when the communes of Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estephe suffered from the rains, 2016 is of exceptional quality throughout all regions producing red wines. A wonderful purity of fresh ripe fruit, with super ripe tannins and balance, permeates the entire crop. There are outstanding wines for everyone's budget.
