by Westgarth Wines March 27, 2019

The assessments of the 2018 vintage in Bordeaux have begun. It was an unusual year, but resulted in grapes that were small, concentrated, and thick-skinned. The en primeur tastings foretell “high impact wines”, according to Jane Anson of Decanter. However, depending on which soils the grapes hail from, things like pH level, fruit concentration, and alcohol level will vary. Time will tell how the wines age, but from the looks of it, they will be potent.
