The best wine of the year for the Bordeaux 2018 vintage has been named! Liv-ex reported that the victor is Lafite Rothschild, the Left Bank First Growth. In second place is Cheval Blanc, and Vieux Chateau Certan, Petrus and Lafleur round out the top five. If you want to buy a fine wine that will maximize your money, look to Branaire Ducru, the top pick in the value-for money category. Thoughts on the 2018 vintage have been mixed, albeit some estates have named it as one of the best.
