En Primeur News : Wednesday, 23rd May 2018
Yesterday afternoon's release of Lynch Bages at a sensible price has been warmly welcomed by the wine trade and customers alike. It's already our biggest-selling wine of the campaign.
Today we have the releases of St Emilion's Moulin St Georges at £270 and St Julien's Lagrange at £370. Also from St Julien we now have La Croix de Beaucaillou at £372, Saint Pierre at £469 and Gloria at £315. Customers looking at Gloria should consider the 2014 vintage here that we have available at £50 per case less. This impressive wine has 94 point ratings from Galloni and Suckling and will be ready to drink soon.
From St Estèphe we now have Phélan Segur. At £385 per dozen it's only £10 cheaper than the excellent 2016 vintage which they believe to be the greatest wine ever made at this estate. With lower scores from every critic than last year and the 2014 still available in the market at under £250 there seems little reason to buy this wine en primeur.
