Bordeaux 2007: White Wines Prevail

Friday, June 6th, 2008

White Bordeaux wines, especially the sweet & stickies from Sauternes and most of the whites from this vintage, are the best coming out of the gate at primeurs week in Bordeaux 2007. The more important reds, from all reports, are soft and flabby. Producers are looking to Asia to help consume a great deal of this vintage however, it seems that prices will not be reduced even in the face of a poor vintage in red Bordeaux Grand Crus. In the past, lesser-quality vintages were usually sold off at a reduced price; this might not be the case for 2007, due to abnormally high labor costs.
