Bordeaux 2022 En Primeur


The 2022 vintage was marked by intense heat, making it the hottest and driest year in over six decades. Despite these challenging conditions, the resulting wines exhibit remarkable balance, freshness, and energy.


Our Wine Director, Mark Pardoe MW, notes that the reds are “a remarkable expression of an extraordinary year and will age superbly”. The whites, whether dry or sweet, are also expected to provide much enjoyment.


We’ve compiled everything you need to know about the Bordeaux 2022 vintage in one place, including details on the latest releases, interviews with producers, and expert insights.
