The 2022 vintage is highly anticipated due to favourable weather conditions throughout the growing season, resulting in high-quality grapes with excellent ripeness and balance. While each vintage in Bordeaux is unique, initial reports suggest that the 2022 wines will be in high demand. Our friends in Bordeaux describe the wines as very aromatic and concentrated, with a fine texture and an unexpected freshness.
The major critics are now starting to publish their reviews with William Kelley (Wine Advocate), saying that Bordeaux had produced some ‘monumental’ wines in 2022, whereas James Suckling mentioned in his report that he ‘never came across anything like this 2022 vintage (in 40 years of Bordeaux barrel tastings)’. For him, “it sets a new benchmark for Bordeaux” since his first reference vintage for the region, which was from barrel in 1982. After massive 3-week tasting, he has attested that they are ‘high quality from top to bottom’. William Kelley (Wine Advocate) expressed the same idea: “terroirs conventionally thought to be of only modest potential were also capable of delivering brilliant results this year.” We will be sending out offers as the wines are released - if you have any specific wine/s you are after, drop us a line
