1 March 2018 We are republishing this guide so that we can add the three tasting articles that have resulted from last month's Southwold-on-Thames blind tasting of 239 top bordeaux 2014s in London. 

24 April 2015 We hope you will enjoy our coverage of this vintage, and even that we may help you make up your mind whether to buy as prices tumble out. But we don't feel there is any urgency whatsoever about this campaign, whatever some of the sales spiels may say. Keep calm! And remember that most of these wines are made in generous quantities, and continue to appear on the secondary market – often in recent years at lower than release prices.
