FIGEAC has been released at £930 per 6 bottles IB. This is another potential 100-pointer according to Neal Martin. He said, 'the 2015 Figeac was stunning and the 2016 no less.
As we near the end of this season's en primeurs, we have more top right bank wines, including 2015 CHÂTEAU AUSONE , (£2800 per six) a stupendous wine made in microscopic quantities which has a real rarity value. Order now if interested.
After 4 days off, the Bordeaux releases have started early today and in great quantity. Amongst those throwing their hats in the ring are some big names like Château Figeac and Château La Conseillante and also some of our perennial favourites, the superb value wines from Château Ferrière in Margaux, and the hugely appealing Pauillac - Château Haut-Bages Liberal.
Brane Cantenac, Léoville Poyferre, Figeac, Beauséjour Duffau, Clos du Marquis, Nénin Today we have one of my favourite wines in Margaux, Brane Cantenac, where Henri Lurton has made another quintessentially elegant wine, and the release price is very realistic. The Cuveliers have released Léoville Poyferré at a price just under that of Léoville Barton, having been well above in some recent vintages.
