NOTE Sold En-Primeur. Stock due to arrive mid-late 2018. See the En-Primeur here.
Margaux – One of the largest appellations and therefore one of the most mixed in quality each year. The Margaux wines tend to be more restrained, mineral and aromatic than the Medoc wines but they don’t achieve the plushness of the Right Bank despite Merlot often being a major player in the wines.
2015 – Great Bordeaux is still very much dependant on the vintage. The weather conditions in Bordeaux for the most part were agreeable albiet everything happened quite early. All the quality factors were there and the wines at the en-primeur tastings brought on a lot of excitement with some people comparing it to the 1998, 2005, 2009 and 2010 vintages for quality. The fairest comparisons seem to be 1985 and 2001 both of which have proved to be enjoyable vintages with good longevity. Prices are fair by Bordeaux standards.
