2017 Bordeaux Futures

The HDH Retail team recently traveled to Bordeaux to participate in barrel tastings of the 2017 vintage. Overall, we found the quality of the reds in 2017 to be between 2014 and 2015 with the top wines coming from the very best terroirs of each appellation. Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac and Saint-Julien produced the best wines on the Left Bank as the Cabernet Sauvignon ripened fully and shows excellent quality. On the Right Bank, frost affected the vineyards more heavily and certainly forced some difficult choices. Those Châteaux on the plateau in Pomerol and the limestone slopes in Saint-Émilion were far less affected and able to produce top wines at near normal quantity levels.

The White and Sweet Bordeaux of the 2017 vintage are excellent overall, with a good amount of freshness and acid, giving a nice level of complexity.

These wines are highly covetable and very limited, so be prepared to act fast to secure bottles for your collection.
