2014 Bordeaux Update – 21st MAY


The week has seen a number of releases, some working, some not.

The big name on Wednesday was Léoville-Barton at GBP 429 per dozen in bond.  This is an excellent Léoville: tasting at this property is almost not necessary given the consistent quality here and, whilst this probably isn’t a speculative buy, it is a wine that will give great deal of pleasure in ten, or twenty, years’ time.

Pape-Clement Rouge and Pape-Clement Blanc are available at GBP 479 and GBP 850 per dozen respectively.  Pricing here is sensible and the wines are both excellent.

The big release today is Domaine de Chevalier Rouge and Domaine de Chevalier Blanc.  The red is as good as ever and sensibly-priced; the white is truly, truly grand vin and is available at GBP 570 per dozen in bond.

We also have the reliable Branaire at GBP 280 and one of Pomerol’s stars, Clinet, at GBP 425 per dozen.
