En Primeur 2021 Releases: May 31st

Giles Cooper, Bordeaux Index Buyer

31 May 2022

After a few rather quiet days we have one of the ‘sleepers’ of Bordeaux released this morning: Malescot St Exupery 2021 is now available at GBP 444. This represents a reduction of 4% on the 2020 release and for a wine which has been a player of significance in Margaux for a number of years, albeit rather unrecognised outside of the critics. It therefore looks like seriously good value, especially given the price rises of physical vintages in the market – the 2020 is currently 8% higher at GBP 480 and the 2019 is between 15 and 20% above.

Also newly available are:

D’Armailhac – GBP 392 per 12

Malartic Lagraviere Rouge – GBP 343 per 12

Malartic Lagraviere Blanc – GBP 473 per 12

Marquis de Terme – GBP 353 per 12

Pedesclaux – GBP 315 per 12
