Bordeaux 2018 – the guide

Julia has worked very hard over two trips to Bordeaux to bring us reviews of more than 500 examples of baby 2018 bordeaux together with her conclusions having tasted them. This photo was taken on 2 April at Léoville Barton, the winner of the 2019 award for château wisteria. 

As usual, our guide is divided into tasting articles and more general coverage of this particularly interesting vintage. The most recently published articles are at the top of each list.
