Top 10 wines of Bordeaux 2016

Lafite heads the pack as the ‘best’ wine of the 2016 vintage according to Liv-ex’s international members but which other labels have excelled in 2016?

There is still some debate on whether a vintage like 2016 can be considered a ‘Left Bank’ or a ‘Right Bank’ year.

The broad consensus is that there is a very slight advantage to the Cabernet-dominated Left Bank and perhaps the hot summer has not done Merlot many favours which gives a slight handicap to the Libourne communes.

On the other hand, there are clearly some stellar Right Bank wines, with Neal Martin noting in his report that if Pomerol excelled in 2015 then it is perhaps St Emilion’s turn to shine this time around.
