BORDEAUX 2015 VIN­TAGE

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

• 2015 was a re­turn to form for Bordeaux af­ter an un­even 2014. It had am­ple fresh fruit though Jan­cis Robin­son notes that “The acid lev­els are fairly, oc­ca­sion­ally dan­ger­ously, low."

• A hot and dry sum­mer took its toll on some vines, but rains and cool weather helped grapes through the crit­i­cal ripen­ing sea­son to the end of Oc­to­ber. • Lisa Per­roti-brown MW marked her de­but as Robert Parker Wine Ad­vo­cate’s new Bordeaux Re­viewer, and sin­gled out Fron­sac, Saint-émil­ion (es­pe­cially grand cru level), Pomerol and their satel­lites as well as Pes­sac-léog­nan for qual­ity.
