En Primeur News : Thursday, 8th June 2017
This morning we have the release of two correctly priced, high-scoring big names.
The excellent second growth Saint Julien Léoville Poyferré is available at £800 which we think is a very fair price.
Clinet is out at £864. This receives the same Wine Advocate score as Pétrus, Le Pin and Lafleur and is the equal second highest-scoring Pomerol of the vintage after L'Eglise Clinet.
Poyferré's neighbour Ducru Beaucaillou is a very fine wine indeed but is above our top estimate at £1700.
We now have the release of one of the finest wines of Pauillac in 2016. Pichon Baron is released at £1350.
