En Primeur News: Wednesday, 5th June 2019
Small additional stocks are now available at opening prices of 4 wines that were previously sold out. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you missed out on these, as they may not show for sale on the web site.
These are :-
La Mission Haut Brion
The Médoc's final non-First Growth release was that of one of the vintage's greatest wines - Montrose at £1560. This is a fabulous St Estèphe that certainly has the potential to rival the great wines produced here in 2016, 2010 and 2009. We had large pre-orders for this blockbuster but, unfortunately, the Château reduced the quantity down to what was purchased in 2017 less 40%. We are trying to fulfill all pre-orders, but after these have been done, the wine will almost certainly be sold out. The second label, La Dame de Montrose is available at £372.
Today we had the release of La Mission Haut Brion and it's siblings plus a distant cousin from over the river.
La Mission Haut Brion Rouge . This "honorary First Growth" has a rating of 98-100 from the Wine Advocate and was only offered by the Château to last year's buyers and, even then, less a 25% quantity reduction. It sold out to pre-orders this morning but we have now managed to purchase a few extra cases which might still be available when you read this.
