The best wines of Bordeaux 2017

Margaux

2016 release price: €420 p/b
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 96-98
Julia Harding MW: 17.5
James Suckling: 97-98
Neal Martin: 93-95

This list is clearly the result of averaging out the picks of Liv-ex’s members which may have distorted things slightly.

Not that Margaux hasn’t made a good wine in 2017 of course but one gets the feeling from the critics that Lafite and Mouton are perhaps the strongest first growths in this vintage.

Although Margaux as an appellation was more affected by frost than Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe, Château Margaux itself escaped largely unharmed and has produced a wine with surprising concentration (said Martin) but ultimately not a wine that quite lived up to the 2016 and monumental 2015.

On the other hand, lime Haut-Brion, the white wine produced under the Pavillon Blanc label is clearly superb.
