UPDATE 2/1/2023:

"Bordeaux 2020…incredible vintage. Similar in style to 2010, if not a touch more elegance." -Jeb Dunnuck

As you can see from the above quote the wine press is gearing up to release their bottle scores on the outstanding 2020 Bordeaux. The last in the great trilogy of 2018-2020, we've been impressed by these since the very beginning (when our negociant friends were nice enough to ship over loads of barrel samples for us to taste).

There is almost no 2020 left to buy from the Negoce at release price, so once the wines from the below list are sold... that's it!

We now have some notes from the UGC 2020 Bordeaux tasting from both our own Phil Bernstein and our good friend Panos Kakaviatos up on the site Thursday. Worth the read for sure and now is the time to buy as many of he wines are still at release price. That will not last!

We expect many of these wines to start arriving in the Spring so now is a great time to buy! -Phil Bernstein


"We are accustomed to the Bordelais cranking out the hyperbole to the point where even they have begun taking their own words with a large pinch of salt. But the truth is that generally the 2020 does form the third in a trilogy of great vintages after 2018 and 2019."
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
