Following 2015, the 2016 growing season has provided Bordeaux with its first excellent back-to-back crops since 2009 and 2010 , and now after 3 years, many are ready to enjoy. For you Bordeaux lovers, or for those of you who want to learn what all the hype is about, mark the date! Bordeaux expert Dan Greathouse of Heidelberg Distributing will be presenting.
Antonio Galloni of Vinous had this to say: “The 2016s are absolutely remarkable wines. The word that comes to mind, unfortunately so often overused, is balance. In technical terms, the 2016s boast off the charts tannins that in many cases exceed those of wines from massive vintages such as 2010. And yet, the best 2016s are absolutely harmonious, with the tannins barely perceptible at all. The 2016s also have tremendous energy and bright, acid-driven profiles, with many wines playing more in the red-fruit area of the flavor spectrum. One of the results of the unusual growing season is that alcohols range from 0.5% to 1% lower than what has been the norm in recent years.”
