Tertre Rouge Bordeaux 2015
"Several châteaux have arguably made their best ever wines," said John Stempfig, who was both extremely excited and somewhat skeptical about Bordeaux's 2015 vintage at the En Primeur tasting. The stilty-ness he noted in the wines came from the overall ripeness of this Bordeaux vintage, which is something that typically occurs only once a decade. Fortunately, in the early term these wines will be exceptionally delicious and extremely welcoming, especially for those who don't like too much tannin. Of course, great producers know exactly what to do to make age-worthy wines when a lucky strike vintage like this comes along and these wines should age well for several decades.
