En Primeur News : Tuesday, 12th June 2018

Today sees the release of the first First Growth of 2017 with Mouton Rothschild out at £4320. This received the (joint) highest score of the vintage from both Farr Vintners and Neal Martin. The Wine Advocate scores it a whopping 97/99 points which puts it in the same league as the 2009 and 2010 vintages.

Mouton's white wine - Aile d'Argent - is also out and priced at £672 per dozen.

Leoville Lascases produced an excellent wine in 2017 but the price of £1776 is very ambitious and only 6% behind the current market price of the 2010 vintage. Leoville Barton (with the same Neal Martin score) at £654 looks a great deal compared to this.

There are also bold prices at Haut Bailly at £888 per dozen and Pontet Canet at £1013. Both of these are over our top estimate. It's a sobering thought that customers can buy the classic, mature Pontet Canet 2000 at £1020.
