This time last year, we were releasing wines from one of the most exciting vintages from Bordeaux in recent years. (Over 70 of those “exceptional” wines, as James Suckling calls them, from the 2018 Bordeaux vintage are still available on our site today, by the way!)
This year, however, looks a bit different. With the COVID-19 pandemic at hand, the releases of 2019 Bordeaux futures have been pushed back. In fact, these wines have yet to be even tasted by critics and merchants. Tasting week was supposed to take place between March 30 and April 2, but, of course, like most everything else, it was suspended to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
The good news is that we have time. These wines are two years from being bottled and many years from drinking bliss. Additionally, experts predict that the 2019 wines will be well worth the wait as the season ended with promising concentrated, balanced, and strongly aromatic fruit.
We can’t wait to share this new vintage with you, our customers. But, in the meantime, we have not stopped sourcing the world’s greatest wines at incredible prices and quality. Not only do we have a full marketplace of nearly 6,000 wines, but those following our newsletter get first pick of our rare finds and special deals. Sign up today!
