BORDEAUX 2016 EN PRIMEUR OFFER
“One of the most unique & exciting vintages” – Max Lalondrelle
“It’s an excellent year” – James Suckling
“I have tasted some absolutely stunning reds” – Jancis Robinson
"On Sunday 2nd April 2017, I flew to Bordeaux for the 2016 En Primeur campaign, my second as the Wine Buyer for Morrish & Banham. I joined a group of old colleagues, acquaintances and friends and together we made up a team of very experienced Bordeaux Buyers. We joined the Union des Grand Crus de Bordeaux Tour and tasted hundreds of wines at dozens of Chateaux over a three day period. On my return to Dorset, I deciphered my tasting notes and have watched the prices very carefully. I am confident that our 2016 Bordeaux En Primeur Offer will give our customers great value wines that provide wonderful drinking over the come years.
2016 has been described as a miracle of a vintage. A mild but wet winter led to an even wetter January and February. A cool, damp March, April and May did nothing to lift the spirits of the Bordelaise! However, warm and still conditions returned in June for flowering and a fine July and August created ideal conditions for the setting of the fruit. A long hot summer continued with the culmination of a harvest of an almost perfectly ripe crop.
2016 is a fine vintage characterised by luscious fruit with a tremendous elegance, energy and freshness. Tannins are in place but they are ripe and the wines will drink early but last long. As ever, careful selection with be necessary. I believe I have selected some delicious wines that offer great value for money.
