2016 Bordeaux: A Return to Classicism

2016 Bordeaux: A Return to Classicism

The marketing departments of many merchants are just bursting into action, building the hype for the 2016 Bordeaux en primeur campaign. You are sure to hear a vast range of superlatives and lines lifted from critics to lend weight to the undoubtedly ‘great’ vintage – dubbed as such even before any wine has finished its period of élèvage in barrel. Yet, assessing the quality of a Bordeaux vintage is far from straightforward...

Our Commentary on the Vintage
2016 Château Cos d’Estournel

2016 Château Cos d’Estournel

We feel compelled to offer this 2016, which has taken us and the market a touch by surprise. While many Château proprietors are waiting for Neal Martin’s 2016 Bordeaux en primeur review before setting their prices and releasing their wines, the management of Château Cos d’Estournel has taken the step of releasing.

2013 Vietti

2013 Vietti

Two wines from the Vietti range that comfortably exceeded our expectations of the 2013 vintage include the Barbaresco ‘Masseria’ and the Barolo ‘Castiglione’. In 2013, both of these examples exceed the quality of any previous vintage that we have tasted. Not only do the wines reflect the vintage conditions, but also the hard work that the team at Vietti has put in with the express aim of raising the quality bar.

2013 Elio Grasso

2013 Elio Grasso

We are really pleased to be offering wines across the Grasso range, from the headlining Barolo to the more humble Chardonnay. Few wine buying visits are as pleasurable as a tasting at Elio Grasso’s estate in Monforte d’Alba; the quality of the wines here are so consistent that it never disappoints.
