The best wines of Bordeaux 2017

Haut-Brion

2016 release price: €420 p/b
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 95-97
Julia Harding MW:
James Suckling: 95-96
Neal Martin: 94-96

A solid if perhaps unremarkable effort from a first growth that has put in some real legwork in in recent vintages. Judging by scores from Neal Martin and Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, one wonders if its white wine might be a better entry as the Pessac whites generally flourished in 2017 while those reds unaffected by the frost sometimes suffered through some late rains in September.

In the case of Haut-Brion the rains ruined the majority of the Cabernet Franc and most was rejected for the final blend.
