Namratha Prashanth shares her personal experience of the wines at the 2022 En Primeur tastings in April

There was a certain buzz in the air as we entered. We were a team of four tasting the 2022 vintage. We quickly got our invitation badges scanned and headed up the stairs to the top of the vat room where the best wines of Saint Julien, Listrac-Médoc, Moulis-en- Médoc were showcased. The room was filled with merchants, importers, distributors, journalists and critics. They were busy swirling wines in glasses, spitting into spittoons, scribbling notes and saying a quick hello to colleagues and friends.
