Wine consultant Michel Rolland said the 2015 vintage being presented to the international wine trade in Bordeaux this week is among the best he has known. "I'm beginning to think this is one of the most beautiful vintages Bordeaux has made," Rolland said at a tasting of wines from estates where he acts as consultant, held at Chateau La Dominique in Saint Emilion. "This is my 43rd." "It's a combination of precision and the quality of the grapes," he said. Wines benefited from hot, dry conditions in the late spring and early summer, as well as mainly dry weather during the harvest.
