Our good friend Olivier Bernard, the president of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, is enthusiastic about this year’s harvest.  In his remarks that he sent out this week, he raved about the perfect conditions, the warm weather, and the performance of the vines.  And now we are seeing the first notes from winemakers who have started the fermentations.

They are even more enthusiastic.  Stephan Von Neipperg of Chateau Canon-la-Gaffeliere who also sits on the board of directors of the UCG, says that he is already sure this will be a great vintage.

Hang onto your hats…and be patient.  It will be a couple of years before you get to taste these wines!
