Jane Anson re-tastes the Bordeaux 2015 vintage now that it's been bottled and finds there's plenty of good options at Cru Bourgeois level and the more affordable end of the price scale in general.
Snap verdict on Bordeaux 2015 wines tasted so far:
Pomerol and St-Emilion get highest overall scores
Southern Médoc & Pessac Léognan best on Left Bank
Many wines offer exceptional value and the best will be long living
More uneven than expected; some estates pushed ripeness and oak too far
