The 2018 vintage will go down as one of the truly great years for Bordeaux. Critic James Suckling says on his website: “After two weeks in Bordeaux tasting more than 1,100 wines from the 2018 vintage, visiting 67 chateaux and talking to hundreds of vintners and winemakers, I can tell you that 2018 is an exceptional year for Bordeaux wines.” The best news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy its bounties. Château Vieux Tuquet is one of Bordeaux’s unsung hero estates. Family owned, consistent, and in 2018, outstanding. It boasts 18.5 hectares of mature vines. The wine is a seamless blend of plummy Merlot, with raspberry rich Cabernet Franc, all ripened to perfection under cloudless skies. A fine partner to roast lamb or duck.
