Top Pauillac 2018 wines: Re-tasted in bottle

Plenty of top names have taken the high alcohols of this vintage in their stride and have aged well since en primeur, reports Jane Anson.


Look out for individual appellation overviews for:

St-Estèphe, St-Julien, Margaux, Médoc, Haut-Médoc, Listrac, Moulis and Pessac-Léognan & Graves

Pauillac was overall a successful appellation in the Bordeaux 2018 vintage.

A few estates were affected by mildew, but the pressure was less intense in Pauillac than in Margaux and came a little later.
