2016 Bordeaux: Reevaluating in the Bottle

2016 Bordeaux: Reevaluating in the Bottle

by Westgarth Wines March 18, 2019

The 2016 Bordeaux vintage received stellar scores when tasted en primeur. Now, the in bottle tasting reviews are coming in with quite a few perfect scores, and Liv-ex has been tallying them and analyzing prices to see if a) the scores are holding up and b) if the relative value is in the consumer’s favor. For those of us saving our pennies to buy premium wine, the results are solid. The prices per case are the same as 2015 but the average score of 2016’s offerings is slightly higher.
