After a bit of a sleepy start yesterday following the May Day Bank Holiday, things have begun to get moving in Bordeaux today with the release of three great value wines. CHÂTEAU CAPBERN came out towards the lower end of our estimate at £170 for 12.
Yesterday and this morning have seen a few of the more serious crus classés being released - the primeur season is getting into gear. 2015 CHÂTEAU PAPE CLEMENT (£625) is a big wine with a mass of rich dark concentration. For us it seems a little forced, but Neal Martin (95-97) and James Suckling (96-97) clearly loved it.
