Stephen Spurrier called the 2015 vintage a very modern Bordeaux vintage, saying “…the fruit dominates the tannins and the acidity.” Many comparisons are drawn with the 2005 and 2010 vintages, but winemakers view the 2015 as more elegant and accessible than both 2005 and 2010. Two words consistently come up from reviewers— freshness and structure. The first wines of the vintage, petit châteaux as they are lovingly called, are beginning to arrive, we will taste a selection on Saturday, January 12th at both shops.
