Bordeaux 2022 by all accounts is being seen as a ‘very promising vintage’ which has every chance of being accepted as an ‘exceptional vintage’. By all accounts the growing season in Bordeaux gave winemakers and vineyard managers constant nightmares with weather patterns encountered witnessing intense heat, drought, hail storms and regional wildfires.
Such was the severity of conditions during the growing season, some conditions had never been experienced before in Bordeaux. Terminology used to describe this vintage, include ‘Unique’, ‘historic’, ‘completely new’ and ‘extreme’. Whilst it is too early to quote comparative vintages, some Chateau owners and winemakers have pointed to 2009 for the silkiness and alcohol levels and 2011 for high concentration of tannins, 2018 and 2010 have also been mentioned in terms of quality and ability to age.the wines
