2015 vintage: an exceptional one in Bordeaux

If 2016 vintage is the best vintage for a long ageing, 2015 vintage is one of the greatest success on the Bordeaux right bank. Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and all the right bank in general are outstanding on this vintage. Good concentration, and a limited acidity that allow to taste this wines in the first years. If they are drinkable young, it doesn't mean that you can't age it long, because 2015 vintage has more freshness than other exceptional but warm vintages like 2009 or 2003 for exemple. On the left bank, the situation is quite different. If the areas between the south and Margaux (34mm of rainfall) has a perfect weather from the start to the harvest, in the north of Margaux there was much more rain in some areas before the harvest. It mean that the result can be different than the 2015 vintage that you are expecting for on some areas. Some of the wines are medium (plus) bodied instead of being full bodied if there was no rain. But the result still very good, because of the perfect balance between a medium acidity, and a medium plus body. As the same than on the rest of Bordeaux, they are all enjoyable.
