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!
2017 Pauillac is the appellation that steals the show this year! From top to bottom, almost every estate produced good wines and a few even came up with great wines that come close to rivaling 2015 and 2016!
