Top St-Estèphe 2018 wines: Re-tasted in bottle

There is plenty to enjoy in St-Estèphe in the Bordeaux 2018 vintage, but look out for atypical flavours and characteristics in some wines, reports Jane Anson.


See individual appellation overviews for:

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

St-Estèphe is home to plenty of excellent quality, enjoyable bottles in the Bordeaux 2018 vintage, but some wines have atyptical flavours and characteristics, as I also found during en primeur tastings.
