This week we publish all of Julia's nearly 400 reviews from the Bordeaux primeurs tastings earlier this month as well as her two-part overview of the 2017 vintage. We will add links when the articles are published. 

Pictured on the right is the bridge in Libourne that crosses the Dordogne river. It's a familiar landmark for those stopping off to taste the J P Moueix wines on the quay as they charge around the Bordeaux region in primeurs season, though it looks rather sad here in the grey and rainy weather that dogged the week.
