Liv-ex survey: ‘best’ wines of Bordeaux 2018

5: Lafleur

Antonio Galloni: 97-100
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 97-100
Julia Harding MW: 18.5

Another property that can seemingly not put a foot wrong at the moment. It was heaped with praise from the get-go – “incredibly seductive” Perrotti-Brown swooned, Suckling just gave it a straight 100 points and Jeff Leve named it his personal wine of the vintage.

It has been released nice and early too and, in line with its wine, got its pricing bang on. Yes at at £5,800 for a dozen it may not be within the reach of all mortals but for those that can afford it, it was a release pitched at just the right line and length.

Nothing the batsman can do and, judging by most merchant’s sites, the wine is (sold) out.
