Senior editor James Molesworth is currently in Bordeaux, tasting young barrel samples of the newest vintage, 2015, to evaluate the wines' expected quality upon release in bottle. It's expected to be the best vintage since the classic 2010, but as always, the quality and character of the wines may not be consistent across the board. Weather patterns may vary in the different appellations and have different influences on the region's grape varieties, which ripen at different rates. Tell us which appellations and varieties you get most excited about and follow along with Molesworth's blogs and tasting notes to see how they fared.
