This afternoon has seen the release of another of the ‘Super Second’ Saint Julien Chateaux – Léoville Poyferré. At £430/12 – this comes out at the same price as Léoville Barton.
Jancis describes Poyferré as ‘Rather glorious really’ and Antonio Galloni notes ‘This is without question one of the stars of the vintage.’
In recent vintages the Poyferré has certainly out-performed Barton as an investment, due in part to the 100 points Mr Parker gave the 2009 – but in our eyes, this year, Barton just looks like the better wine.
Please see the complete list of releases, so far, here.
