Over the years, the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux (UGC) has become one of the premier ambassadors of French culture, with wine being its most integral part. Around the globe, tastings are organized by the Union to showcase some of Bordeaux's best producers, giving wine lovers the first chance at trying the most current vintage release from each château. And while large events and in-person tastings have been suspended this year, rest assured that there’s no shortage of excellent wine to be found. Château owners and winemakers from more than 60 estates have unveiled their outstanding 2018 vintage, and we are thrilled to extend first dibs special pricing to our customers.
The stars aligned for Bordeaux vintners in 2018 and there are magnificent wines to be found at every price point. Jancis Robinson reports that “Bordeaux 2018 will be remembered as an exceptional year, with no shortage of outstanding wines from this extraordinary vintage.” The weather patterns early in the growing season kept vineyard managers on their toes, but all seemed to come together later in the season and the region saw record sun throughout the summer and fall. While the wines will continue their evolution for many years in bottle, it’s safe to say we can expect densely structured, bold, and concentrated wines.
