Coming this fall: Bordeaux Futures 2019
Due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19, Bordeaux’s 2019 en primeur tastings have been postponed, possibly till the end of summer. But despite the disruption to normal proceedings, Bordeaux fans can take heart. The 2019 vintage promises to be of high quality, while prices may be lower than in recent years, so there’s much to be excited about.
“Early indications suggest that Bordeaux’s 2019s are stylistically similar to the 2016s and ’18s but with a bit more freshness and structure. The word out of Bordeaux is that it is going to be a very good to excellent vintage.” (Paul Farrell, Category Manager, European Wines, LCBO)
“It’s hard to say … [that 2019] was better for the Right Bank or Left Bank. They are all just really good quality wines and some are fantastic.” (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, May 13, 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)
