Bordeaux 2019: Fantastic quality, lower prices
“[Right and Left Bank] are all just really good quality wines and some are fantastic.” (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, May 13, 2020)
Due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19, Bordeaux’s 2019 en primeur tastings took place remotely, with participating châteaux arranging for samples to be sent to many of the world’s top wine critics.
The consensus of the world’s wine press, and others, is that the wines of 2019 Bordeaux are of an exceptional quality.
“The indications are that Bordeaux’s 2019s are stylistically similar to the 2016s and ’18s, and that this is going to be a very good to excellent vintage. One exciting aspect of this unique campaign is that, in general, prices are lower than they were for the 2018s, and in some cases are significantly lower. This is quite unusual for vintages of similar quality and style.” (Paul Farrell, Category Manager, European Wines, LCBO)
“Our prices will go down, which means it is going to be a great bargain for such a fine wine.” (Véronique Sanders, director of Château Haut-Bailly, quoted in Wine Enthusiast, June 17, 2020)
“The top wines on the Left Bank seem less lush but more structured than in 2018, so closer to 2016 in style ... [while the] top Right Bank wines seem closer to 2018 in style. They are rich and lush in many cases, although with slightly higher acidity levels than in 2018.” (Jane Anson, decanter.com, April 16, 2020)
Please note that the wines here do not comprise the complete 2019 offer from Vintages. This has been a unique campaign and will continue to be so. We will be releasing a second offer later this year, which will include a selection of new products. Stay tuned for information on product availability.
