Is The Bordeaux 2015 Vintage Showing Early Signs Of Greatness?

June 19, 2015

Chateau owners in Medoc say the Bordeaux 2015 vintage has got off to a good start following excellent flowering conditions in the vineyard, despite some concerns over recent rain, putting chateaux owners in an optimistic mood, with several describing conditions as ‘perfect’.

‘There is still a long way to go, but we have nice, big bunches and that means there is good potential for quantity,’ said Philippe Dhalluin, of first growth Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac.

The character and quality of the Bordeaux 2015 vintage can still be determined in the next three months.
