Bordeaux 2018 will be remembered as an exceptional year in more ways than one. It may be a cliché but it really was 'a game of two halves': until the football World Cup in June, we'd had a wet winter and then a thoroughly soggy spring. Many châteaux struggled with the threat of mildew, and Daniel, Nelly and the team did a terrific job in the vineyard keeping any such nasties at bay.
And then the sun shone all the way to the autumn harvest - to have three complete months of sunny, dry weather from early July right through to early October is rare. After a small vintage in 2017 because of a late spring frost, we were lucky in 2018 to bring in an excellent crop for both the whites and the reds.
