Vintage summary by buyer Tim Sykes
There are some excellent wines this year, both on left and right banks. The 2020s offer a return to a more classically styled vintage. As a general rule the wines have more structure and tannin, but lower alcohol levels than the last two vintages, so most of the top wines will require patience, and whilst quality overall is less even than in 2019 and 2018, those châteaux with vineyards in the most privileged sites have unquestionably produced some very lovely wines indeed.
