  4. Top Bordeaux Picks

    Bordeaux en primeur is a strange game for the trade - so much time is devoted to it yet merchants struggle to make 10% on the in bond price which with currency swings and cost of transport often means selling claret as futures is an act of charity.  But however much we grumble, everyone enjoys great Bordeaux and most will set aside funds for a good vintage (despite the percentage dropping, it still makes up 80% of most investment portfolios), and we'd rather you spent it with us than elsewhere.

  10. Bordeaux 2015

    James Suckling says it all: ‘The 2015 vintage is an extremely exciting year for Bordeaux producing wines with exuberant fruit character and plenty of tannin backbone to give the wines form and tension. They have a unique ripe fruit character yet remain cool and fresh. Merlot-based wines are amazing quality’. Continue reading
