Bordeaux 2015 Over Achievers

We've just landed our first shipment of outstanding Bordeaux red wine bargains from legendary Bordeaux vintage 2015. This is a great chance to grab a taste of this universally acclaimed vintage, which produced more over-achievers and 'sleepers-of-the vintage' than any other in living memory.

While Bordeaux produces many of the most expensive wines in the world, most of the heavy hitters require at least a decade in the cellar - but not these beauties! There is plenty to love in the glass right now with lashings of fruit wrapped up in a silky tannic structure for early and mid-term drinking. These are beautifully made and full of exuberant character with a purity and finesse not matched since the last great Bordeaux vintage of 2010. 

"The 2015 vintage is turning out to be an extremely exciting year for Bordeaux with fabulous fruit character and plenty of tannin backbone to give the wines form and tension. Merlot-based wines are amazing quality. The wines also show their terroirs and are not excessively marked by the ripeness of the year. Some producers said that their alcohols are well under levels of Bordeaux's last top vintage - 2010. "The purity of fruit in the wines and clarity are very impressive," said Hubert de Bouärd, the owner of St. Emilion's Château Angélus. The best appellations are Pomerol, St. Emilion, Pessac-Léognan, and Margaux but there are lots of smaller appellations that excelled."
