Bordeaux2018 extraprima 2 Thomas Boxberger has travelled ten days in April 2019 to Bordeaux and tasted 944 barrel samples. BORDEAUX 2018 THE DARK MAJESTY OF SMALL BERRIES 2018 is a truly great vintage in Bordeaux for the top-wines. The weather-conditions have been strange: during the first half of the year, it rained more than in a usual full calendar year, after which serious drought and heat set in, finishing the vegetation cycle with an extensive Indian summer right towards the harvest. Further, the 2018s from Bordeaux experienced the most substantial mildew attack of the past forty years. Naturally, this demanding scenario led to inconsistent grape quality, as each vineyard plot had diversified requirements. A maximum quality was achievable for those who had done everything right. However, there was not much room for error. Any wrong decision or omission of treatments had an immediate effect on the quality of the grapes. The berries remained small due to the persistent drought, which resulted in a powerful, dark fruit component of enormous richness in the wines, while the water reserves in the underground kept the freshness. The wines of 2018 combine the positive attributes of a hot vintage with the temperament of a cooler vintage. Finally, 2018 is a heterogeneous vintage with exceptionally good wines across all quality ranges. The best 2018s stand alongside the outstanding wines from 2015, 2016, and 2017, all four years being amongst the best Bordeaux vintages ever! You just have to choose the right wine … Text by Thomas Boxberger © 2019
