2017 Pomerol produced stunning wines from those vineyards located on the peak of the plateau. In fact, the wine of the vintage comes from Pomerol. But for those not located on the plateau, 2017 is more difficult.
2017 Pessac Leognan suffered the most difficulties of the major appellations due to the frost. But some of those that survived managed to produce good wine, especially dry, white Bordeaux wine.
2017 Margaux is a mixed bag. There are success and wines that are less successful. Knowing who made the best wines is imperative this year.
The Haut Medoc along with Listrac and Moulis had a difficult time this year. Still, there are a few early drinking surprises, if you know where to look.
Saint Julien is perhaps the second most consistent appellation in the 2017 vintage. The wines have character, soft tannins, complexity and early approachability, which is a winning combination.
2015 Paul Jaboulet La Chapelle is a mind blowing bottle of wine! It’s so good, I ran out of points, as well as wine in my glass when tasting it!
