En Primeur 2017
“Here is a vintage where pockets of extraordinary wines possessing great depth and super ripe, super fine-grained tannins can be found, achieving ripeness in some cases at around 13% alcohol. This is a quality and style of Bordeaux that we have not seen in many, many years and, without getting into a long-winded discussion about the possible impact of climate change on wine styles, is something of a miracle in our modern times.
They possess the structure and intensity of fruit to evolve incredibly and be very long-lived.”
Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate
