The 2018 Champion

The 2018 Champion

by Westgarth Wines May 13, 2019

Liv-ex came out with their annual survey results on the top Bordeaux wines of the year and Lafite was named ‘wine of the 2018 vintage’, regaining the crown it last wore in 2016. The ‘best value’ list was released as well with Branaire Ducru at the top. Those of us who buy fine wine will want to make note of that as well as Capbern, Rauzan Ségla, Domaine Chevalier Beychecelle, Labegorce and Dame de Montrose. Although a larger number than usual amount of ‘most disappointing wines’ were reported, the year’s score by merchants was higher than 2015. Read on for the stats on predicted prices!
