En Primeur News : Thursday, 16th May 2013
Another busy morning of releases today (and again, nothing in the afternoon!) One of our favourite wines of this (and most other vintages) - the ever-reliable Domaine de Chevalier Rouge is available at £335 and the Blanc is £650. With 92-95 points from Parker, the red has to be one of the bargains of the vintage. The white received the same score from Parker and, to our mind, it is one of the best dry whites of 2012.
Next, another reasonably priced wine from the high-achieving commune of the Pomerol. Clinet has made a "...star of the vintage..." according to Parker and we thought that this wine was delicious - a great representation of this benchmark Pomerol vintage and £500 per case.
Finally, Montrose is now available at £640 per case. This is cheaper than the 2011 but sadly there are other physically available vintages that are available at lower prices.
