A few weeks ago we sourced some top class and great value Bordeaux wines from the much praised 2015 vintage.
We’ve also secured ‘pre-Brexit’ currency rates, making this offer too good to pass you by!
Bordeaux Vintage Quality
Decanter Consultant Editor Steven Spurrier said that he saw 2015 as a very modern Bordeaux vintage. ‘It’s not like Bordeaux 10 years ago, when tannins could be hard as nails. In 2015, the fruit dominates the tannins and the acidity.’
This is a terrific vintage and will reward those who take the plunge!
