En Primeur News : Thursday, 11th May 2017
We are now delighted to be able to offer four wines from Denis Durantou the owner and winemaker of Château L'Eglise Clinet. His grand vin receives the Wine Advocate's highest Pomerol score of the vintage (above even Petrus, Le Pin and Lafleur) and there is no doubt that all his properties are on top form in 2016. Prices remain modest for the excellent quality of these wines. You can buy them here.
La Chenade £140
Les Cruzelles £200
Released this morning is Clerc Milon 2016 at our top estimate price of £600. This Chateau is very popular in the Far East but the 17% price increase (in euros) is rather disappointing. Customers searching for better value - and a higher score - in Pauillac should look at Batailley which is nearly £200 per case cheaper.
