2019 Bordeaux Futures

      The 2019 vintage in Bordeaux appears to be a very good one, combining some of the best features of 2015, 2016 and 2018; there is some of the smooth fruit and silky structures of 2015 and 2018, albeit with slightly less concentration, combined with aspects of the freshness of 2016. It is a more classical vintage than 2018, and perhaps will be the new norm going forward. In any case, the vintage sounds quite delightful, and I, for one, very much look forward to tasting it when I can      

       Today marks the first significant release of the 2019 Bordeaux vintage, which is leading Pauillac estate, Pontet Canet. Noises have been coming out of Bordeaux recently that a campaign of sorts might be coming up, but today’s release is somewhat of a surprise given that there are very few critics’ scores out there.

       Thankfully Pontet Canet has made a very strong statement with their pricing (which will hopefully challenge the other chateaux to do the same) by releasing at 31% less than the 2018 vintage – and even 12% lower than the 2014.  Stay tuned for our dedicated campaign page to be found here in the next few days.  New releases will be sent via email as they come in.
