Bordeaux 2018 will be remembered as an outstanding vintage with wines of full ripeness, fruit intensity and high alcohol. Yields were close to average and of excellent quality for the great majority; some few were adversely affected by difficult conditions including hailstorms in May and July and very high rainfall in March and April leading to high disease pressure. The latter half of the season was textbook perfect for ripening and harvesting late-ripening red varieties, with warm, dry conditions throughout July, August, September and into October.
The fruit was destemmed then fermented in stainless steel and concrete fermenters. The wine was matured in a mix of new and seasoned French oak for 12 months before bottling at the estate.
