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.
Out this morning are the single vineyard wines from Jonathan Maltus, Vieux Château Mazerat (£630) and Les Astéries. These Saint Emilions have have rave reviews and are worth a look.
Rather too many wines at once today - the Lafite stable, which of course includes the top Pomerol l'Évangile topping off a little rush of releases. A shame because there are some stories here - Jean-Luc Thunevin's Valandraud (£895) has been elevated to 1er Grand Cru Classé status from this year, and is a fab wine if you are into this sort of modern style - it is done with real panache.
