It's a vintage of haves and have-nots, says senior editor James Molesworth, and that makes his annual trip to taste the young wines from barrel all the more critical. Which 2017s will be worth buying as futures? Follow his blog posts highlighting top châteaus and estates to watch. Plus, get his scores and tasting notes for hundreds of Bordeaux reds, dry whites and sweet wines.
