2018 is a superb vintage for the red wines of Bordeaux. There is an intensity of pure ripe fruit aligned with sweet ripe tannins and balance that make these wines very special. Alcohol levels are high with most winesâ14% or a little higher. However you do not feel the alcohol due to the seamless and intensively balanced fruit.
Many of these wines will certainly become modern day legends. For those fans of great Bordeaux this is certainly a vintage to stock up on, especially considering the fact the US dollar has gained 10% in value over the Euro since this time last year. As long as the pricing does not exceed 2016 prices, then these wines are worth buying. There are some absolute stunners, especially on the Left Bank, and to quote wine writer James Suckling âit could turn out to be an all-time great, similar to 2010, 2009 and 1989 or even such classics as 1982 or 1959.â
