Bordeaux’s 2015 Stars

March 12, 2018

Lisa Perrotti-Brown of The Wine Advocate has released her top picks from the 2015 Bordeaux vintage. The Right Bank wines lead the way with Saint-Émilion’s Cheval Blanc and Pomerol’s Petrus. From the Left Bank, Pessac-Leognan’s Haut-Brion also made the cut. The growing season was cited as being “nearly perfect”, albeit the Medoc experienced ill-timed rain. The price may rise and fall but these châteaus retain their reputation for a reason.
