Welcome to the home of the Bordeaux En Primeur 2022 campaign. From our Vintage Report to the latest releases, this is your go-to page for all things Bordeaux 2022.
The 2022 growing season is well remembered as a year of extremes in terms of heatwaves and drought, yet as we made our way through the Bordeaux’s Left and Right Banks, the words “surprise,” “unexpected,” and “adaptation” were a continuous refrain to try to explain the aromatic vibrancy and freshness in the wines. After tasting through hundreds of barrel samples, we can conclude that although the 2022 vintage is not uniformly excellent across each and every estate, it has undoubtedly produced some of the most thrilling wines of remarkable power and elegance that we have ever tasted en primeur.
Left Bank vs Right Bank
Comprised of over 100,000 hectares of vineyards, Bordeaux and its wines are divided and influenced by the Dordogne and Garonne rivers that seep into the Gironde estuary. The vineyards north of the Dordogne make up the Right Bank, nestled in the middle is the Entre-Deux-Mers, whilst those to the south of the Garonne make up the Left Bank. With each Chateau on either bank having their own distinct characteristics, there’s plenty to discover about Bordeaux’s Left and Right Banks.
