Bordeaux 2022 EP | Second Wines of Grand Vin Calibre

In the hands of Bordeaux’s most skilled winemakers, 2022 was capable of outstanding results across all terroirs. Nowhere was this more apparent than in the gorgeous second wines of the top châteaux.

In the distant past, these junior siblings wouldn’t have merited much thought, but today, with the myriad advances in viticultural practices and winemaking technology, the second wines of 2022 are as good as some of the Grands Vins from days of old, if not better.

We have chosen our favourite second wines from each of the seven major appellations, all of which are worthy of inclusion in your cellar. Stars in their own right, these are some of the finest wines being made in Bordeaux at a price point that flatters the wallet.
