A blind tasting of the Saint Emilion grands crus classés A across several vintages saw Angelus and Pavie lag behind fellow “A”s Cheval Blanc and Ausone, leading one critic to suggest they are “not on the same level”.
Saint Emilion estate, Pavie, has unveiled a silver label for its 2012 vintage to celebrate its elevation to grand cru classé A status in that same year.
The Bordeaux 2011s have received a boost since Robert Parker’s in-bottle scores, with trades in the vintage almost up to almost 20% of Bordeaux trading activity on Liv-ex this month.
The latest Cellar Watch Market Report brings more miserable news for the fine wine world as Liv-ex’s indices continued to slide in April following a torrid en primeur campaign.
Mouton Rothschild and Right Bank heavyweights Angélus and Pavie threw their combined backs behind the 2013 en primeurs this morning.
Our en primeur report crosses over to the Right Bank and tours the big names of Pomerol and Saint Emilion.
After nearly a year and a half of continued increases, prices for Right Bank grand crus, Pavie and Angélus, have slowed.
The strongest performing index in the Liv-ex Bordeaux 500, the Right Bank 100, has suffered a slight dip in recent months, is the surge coming to an end?
Both Angélus and Pavie are showing signs of increased attention from buyers following their recent reclassification to Grand Cru Classé A status.
The Right Bank 100 has posted its 13th consecutive monthly gain on Liv-ex even as the rest of the Bordeaux 500 continues to dip.
