The wait is over: Bordeaux 2016 en primeur is here. This is a vintage that has been as well received as it was eagerly anticipated. Our teams have been out in the region tasting the wines: you can read all their reports below, but the verdict is that this is an excellent vintage. Quite unique, it offers elegant wines with both freshness and concentration. In a sense it marks a return to the “old school” Claret, but there’s an appealing, modern edge that makes these wines drinkable in their youth – some of the easiest wines we’ve ever tasted en primeur.
