Bordeaux 2015 En Primeur Releases – 9th May

We are very pleased to be up and running in the 2015 Bordeaux En Primeur campaign. So far the prices that have been released have been very sensible – only 10% to 20% up on last years prices – and the wines are comfortably 50% better in quality.

The week starts with the Saint Julien property, Château Beychevelle, which is always in huge demand and particularly difficult to pick-up when ‘physical’. We are delighted to have picked up their 2015 at £535.00 IB per case.

  • Neal Martin 92-94
  • Jancis Robinson 17.0
  • Tim Atkin 93
  • 92 Decanter
  • James Suckling 92-93
  • 90-93 James Molesworth

Our second purhase of the campaign is one of the great names of Graves, Château Pape Clement has just released their ‘Rouge’ which came highly recommended to us by Stuart at £625.00 IB per case. This represents excellent value compared to the 2005 (£1,250), 2009 (£1,300) and 2010 (£1,600).

Both Neal Martin and James Suckling have awarded huge scores – 95-97 and 97-98 Points respectively with Suckling describing the ’15 as the “Best young Pape Clément I have tasted”.

There is still time to invest in the campaign. If you are interested, please contact Charles Waud on 07984 880 698 or
