Bordeaux pre arrival 2017

The bottled 2017 Bordeaux capture all ups and downs that were characteristic of a growing season marked by dramatic frost and uneven weather throughout the rest of the year. Although 2017 is not a great vintage across the board, it is a vintage with many great wines. ANTONIO GALLONI

Bordeaux 2017 pre arrival offer - The wines are on the way.

The story of Bordeaux 2017 really began during EP for the 2016 releases. Bordeaux, like the rest of France was struck by three consecutive days of frost in late spring which devastated the vines, and in some cases, led to the total loss of crop for estates. Overall Bordeaux yields were reduced by 80% of normal. However, to borrow from Will Hargrove, the frost in 2017 was a snob. The best terroirs of the right bank were spared, and the communes of Saint-Estephe, Saint-Julien and Pauillac – in other words those closest to the moderating effects of the river Gironde. It seems that in Bordeaux, as everywhere, terroir does matter! It is also an outstanding vintage for Sauternes and Bordeaux Blanc.

Following the huge success of the 2015 and 2016 vintages Bordeaux experienced something of a re-calibration with 2017 having dropped their prices around 10-20%. This is good news for Bordeaux collectors as prices remain competitive.

I have attached updated reviews for all the wines - in almost every case the bottled wines have ended up at the top of the expected range or higher. We have chosen very selectivily and are very happy to offer what we feel is the very best of this mixed vintage - there is some great drinking here.

All pricing includes taxes and duties and is the final price of the wines to the consumer barring domestic shipping costs once the wines arrive. This will be calculated based on our basic freight rates. Prices will raise by 5-10% once they arrive.
