2010 Bordeaux Primeurs – d’Armailhac, Croix Saint Georges, Le Boscq

by Charles Lea

Château d’Armailhac, made by the Mouton team, is out this morning. It is up just over 17% on the 2009 release price. The wine is well-regarded, and reputedly selling fast in Bordeaux – offered subject to stock remaining.

We also offer today the excellent Pomerol from Jean-Philippe Janoueix, Château La Croix Saint Georges, which represents good value in an appellation that was highly successful in 2010, and where other top wines will be much more expensive.

Finally, for this mail at least, we have the modern but classical Saint Estephe Château le Boscq, which has a very good following as a relatively early drinker.
