En Primeur Bordeaux 2018

"The 2018 Bordeaux vintage promises greatness, with quality potentially on par with classic vintages such as 2015 and 2010."
– James Suckling

"Bordeaux winemakers hoping for a big harvest in 2018, after France's cataclysmic frosts of 2017, were disappointed. Heavy rains early in the season led to mildew, while hail in some areas also thinned the crop. Then, the weather dramatically changed course. "Sun, sun, sun," is how Christian Moueix, who oversees several estates on the Right Bank, described the summer, citing data showing record levels of solar exposure. While the growing season was challenging, ideal weather late in the season ripened the crop well. Quantity may be low, but vintners have high hopes for quality."
– James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"A vintage of great potential, with outstanding reds and some very good whites. Balance will be key as alcohol levels are generally quite high. The fourth very good to excellent vintage in a row for 75% of the leading châteaux."
– Jancis Robinson MW
