T he 2015s are the result of a vintage that started unusually warm and ended cool and dry. With a wet winter followed by a drier- than-usual spring, conditions were perfect for both flowering and fruit set. But then from June into July, the temperatures soared. v ineyards with good water retention excelled, while others were punished by the heat. Then a welcoming rain arrived in August, which helped the vines recover. Finally, September arrived with lower-than-average temperatures and (with the exception of Saint- e stèphe) a lower-than-average amount of precipitation. As a result, growers were able to pick under ideal conditions. In the end, the best of the 2015 Bordeaux vintage are must-have wines for lovers of the region, and m orrell has amassed quite a collection to help you fill the cellar. ✦
