What will be the quality of Bordeaux 2022 ?
In the week of April 23rd tastings will take place in Bordeaux. Vintage 2022 will be presented to the international trade and press. The 2022 vintage looks set to be surprisingly good, despite the perilous growing season.
The resulting fruit, however, has been lauded as exceptionally fine. Early reports suggest both Merlot and Cabernet Franc look set to be especially promising, with both exuding richness and depth of character with concentrated fruit and fine aromatics.
For Cabernet Sauvignon, the vintage also looks set to be excellent as the tannins, along with the fruit, hit phenolic ripeness removing any fear of a green character. Although alcohol is likely to be higher than usual – a result of the heat – the fruit character will likely be rich and intensely concentrated while ripe tannins promise the sophisticated structures needed for long-term cellaring.
In the coming months all reviews of the wines will be presented and 'en Primeur' prices will be known. If you have interest in these wines and this 'en Primeur' campaign, please let us know by sending us a mail to [email protected].
