2010 Bordeaux vintage looks "promising" says Bordeaux Index

Published:  10 September, 2010

The prospects of a "great" 2010 Bordeaux vintage look "promising" according to fine wine merchant, Bordeaux Index.

Early indications from Château Clinet point lower yields and recent good weather that has "done it's best to ensure the 2010 vintage will be one to remember."

Ronan Laborde, chief executive officer of Château Clinet said:  "We will have a lower production than in 2009 - down approximately 15%, maybe more.

"All the berries have already turned to red on our spot (Cabernet included). Looking at the leaves and tasting some berries makes us think it is a promising vintage. We should start to pick the young Merlots in two weeks. Old vines...we'll see."

Bordeaux Index founder, Gary Boom, said: "The early signs are promising for the 2010 Bordeaux. However, we're certainly not getting carried away - there's a long way to go and a lot can happen before we can start getting really excited."
