There is always a suspicion that it is the lower cost wines that lead the way off the bottom after a long consolidation, but the Right Bank wines’ performance since the referendum vote gives the lie to that.
Four big name estates have followed Margaux as this year’s campaign, finally, looks as though it’s entering its end game.
Two Bordeaux wines, both from St Emilion, both grand cru classé, one lauded by Robert Parker – so why does the other get all the attention?
With news that it is the 2012 vintage driving non-first growth Bordeaux currently, what are the best-performing wines?
The 2011 vintage of St Emilion grand cru classé ‘A’, Pavie, has quietly been one of the most searched for wines on the Liv-ex exchange in the last month.
Pavie’s 2010 has been up-graded to a “perfect” 100-points by Robert Parker in the latest issue of The Wine Advocate.
Over half of the 49 Bordeaux wines given a “perfect” 100-point score by Robert Parker since 2000 are currently trading below £5,000 a case.
Liv-ex has released the results of its bi-annual classification of the Right Bank and found Pavie to not quite live up to its “A” status when it comes to price.
Almost 20 years old now the 1996s have climbed solidly in price but some have gone further on weaker laurels than those whose promise was noted at an early age.
Pavie emerged this morning and, as was expected, mirrored fellow Saint Emilion “A” Angelus in its pricing, while the “best value” wine of the year was also released.
