The 2020 Bordeaux Futures campaign kicks off today with some big names leading the pack! There is broad consensus that this is another very high quality year in Bordeaux completing a trilogy of back to back to back excellent vintages in 2018/2019/2020. On the Right Bank, the wines are wonderfully powerful, concentrated and aromatic across the board. A number of people are saying the Saint Emilions and Pomerols could develop into a modern-day 1998. On the Left Bank, it's a bit more variable, but the top terroirs have delivered some truly excellent wines in a ripe but balanced and perfumed style that will be welcome to lovers of classical, old-school Bordeaux with lower ABVs. While we wait for the major US critics to release their scores at the end of the month, we have some early intel from Decanter's Jane Anson who has bestowed some great reviews on the wines below. On the pricing front, prices are remaining close to the unbelievable values of the 2019s, and with the recent suspension of US tariffs on French wine, the future is looking bright again for the futures market. Quantities are limited, place your orders today!
