Vintage Reports

Each time we release the wines of a new vintage, we assess the conditions and factors which have shaped the wines of that year. We draw on first hand commentary from leading growers in the region which we gather during our regional visits.

Drawing on our own tasting experience, we compare to previous vintages and advise on the longevity and quality of the wines produced.

Bordeaux 2019

As in previous years, we will email out offers of wines where we believe there is a merit in purchasing, and list full availability of the 2019s as they release on our website, as whether or not we...

Burgundy 2018

The 2018 vintage in Burgundy has attracted plenty of comment to date. The UK wine magazine, Decanter, released an article shortly after the harvest with the tagline that there were whispers in Burgundy suggesting this vintage could become ‘one of the region's all-time great vintages’; other sources alluded to the great 1947 vinta...
