We now have the release of the magnificent Lafite 2018 - the greatest wine produced here for many years and the recipient of potential 100 point scores from The Wine Advocate, James Suckling and Decanter. The price is £6000 per dozen.
Big names of the right bank are due out today. We started with Ausone at £6900 and Chapelle d'Ausone at £1750. Ausone is sold out to pre-orders and we have a small quantity of Chapelle available for sale. L'Evangile is out at £2200. Quantities on this Pomerol are very limited with 60% less quantity released than last year.
These were swiftly followed by the magnificent L'Eglise Clinet. Denis Durantou's fabulous Pomerol Château makes wines that consistently rival those of neighbours Lafleur and Pétrus and is offered at £2616.
