Lafleur 2019 has been released and is being offered by merchants at £5,800 per 12×75, the same as last year’s opening price. The 2018 has since risen in value by 135.6% to now command a Market Price of £13,644 per case.
By releasing at a price equivalent to its 2018, Lafleur stands out as the exception rather than the rule in this year’s campaign (thus far).
Lafleur ranked among Jean-Marc Quarin’s top-scoring wines, with 98 points. Many critics are yet to publish their assessment of today’s release.
Based on today’s release price, however, a score of 94+ would make the wine sit on the ‘Fair Value’ line. Any higher, and the wine would appear of very good value. As the chart below shows, Quarin’s score positions today’s release well below the price implied by Liv-ex’s ‘Fair Value’ methodology.
