2016 Bordeaux: Bancroft’s report

Bordeaux 2016 – a brief overview

As with the 2015’s there is a much improved feeling in the air regarding the 2016 vintage: In fact many properties were bench marking the 2015 vs 2016 with the 2009 vs 2010 vintages –  One thing is for certain we have a very attractive vintage indeed to offer! That said, as with previous year’s success or failure of the campaign will be dependent on prices and the attitude of Chateaux owners over the next month or two – I must say that early signs are looking good on this so far… Fundamentally en-primeur has to work for ALL parties: the owners, negociants, merchant and particularly you, the consumer.

We visited the region 2 weeks ago, and were very impressed by the elegance of the wines, we would sincerely like the campaign to work as we believe there are many very, very good wines to be had in 2016 – Ultimately success comes from looking after our customer’s wine buying interests and playing the game.
