The Bordeaux 2018 vintage is indeed an exceptional year, and we are more than enthusiastic about the wines and their potential. The wines are rich, complex and fresh. Quality is consistent with a smaller production. En Primeur is the best way to secure your favorite wines at the best conditions.

“As I wrap up my time in Bordeaux for 2018 Primeurs, the wines are very exciting and consistent at all levels. The purity of fruit is present, tannins are ripe and polished, yet the wines remain fresh and elegant. 2018 is of exceptional quality with lesser quantity and already shows excellent balance: A must have for all wine lovers.”
