Four big name estates have followed Margaux as this year’s campaign, finally, looks as though it’s entering its end game.
The ‘wine of the 2015 vintage’, Château Margaux, has released at just over £4,000 a case and merchants expect “significant demand”.
Cos d’Estournel has set the cost of its 2015 wine over 40% above that of its 2014, as opening prices out of Bordeaux begin to spiral.
Have Ausone’s prices drifted too far into the upper atmosphere? With brokers keeping their hands off are there potential buying opportunities to be had?
Château Palmer has offered its 2015 at almost the same opening price as its 2009 and 2010 wines.
Neal Martin’s 10-year retrospective report for the Bordeaux 2006 vintage has seen Mouton Rothschild and Cheval Blanc take the top scores.
Lynch-Bages’ opening price is sure to cause a sharp intake of breath but might it be a savvy buy?
Château Pichon Baron led the sally forth of en primeur releases yesterday morning but with a price that will likely give buyers pause for thought.
A 225-litre barrel of 2015 Palmer topped the best-selling lots at the estate’s first ex-cellar sale in Hong Kong at the weekend, making over HK$3 million.
With Vinexpo now a distant memory, dbHK was gripped by auction fever and sank spirits with the defiantly non conformist author of the Whisky Bible, Jim Murray.
