2015 Vintage Report
Hopes have been high for the 2015 vintage ever since the harvest. Our Co-Founder and Buying Director Bud Cuchet has just returned from Bordeaux and enthused that the wines he tried had: "the richness of 2009 and the structure of 2005." We will publish the 2015 Bordeaux Vintage Report right here shortly.
It will include exclusive market insight, guidance on expected prices, comparison to previous vintages, tasting notes, which appellations and producers to keep an eye on and what are likely to be the top performing red, white and sweet wines. As FINE+RARE are not tied to specific wineries we offer completely unbiased advice, making us one of the most trusted advisors in the market.
Expert, critic & winemaker views
Last year Robert Parker stated that “Bordeaux has to have a reckoning soon about their pricing.” We await to see if this advice has been heeded. Although few critics have pinned their colours to the mast at this stage, there is a bullish confidence around the vintage...
Bill Blatch has released a positive vintage report stating: "Quite clearly 2015 is by far the most concentrated of the last five years." Read a summary of his report at the bottom of the page HERE.
James Molesworth of Wine Spectator has advised that “Bordeaux winemakers believe the vintage is a potential classic” and “2015 should easily be the best vintage since 2010.”
Gavin Quinney of Château Bauduc, writing for Jancis Robinson, is confident that the “Rule of Five remains intact: every vintage ending in five or zero since 1985 has been excellent and that sequence continues with 2015.”
In a video interview for James Suckling, Christian Moueix, owner of La Fleur-Pétrus, Trotanoy and Bélair-Monange and a man with over forty vintages under his belt, has described 2015 as “the most luxuriant and flamboyant vintage I have made in my lifetime.”
This is set to be a truly intriguing En Primeur.
