April 10th 2018
Our first day of Bordeaux En Primeur 2017 and we brought the rain with us! Our wet morning began driving to the most Northern part of the Left Bank, St Estèphe, to cover the top estates before travelling south just across the border to taste in Pauillac. Both St Estèphe and Pauillac are appellations where there are highs and lows. However, both appellations profited from the influence of Gironde estuary, which saved them from the frosts in April 2017; others further south were not as lucky.
