BORDEAUX 2015 VINTAGE
• 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.
