Twelve different Bordeaux 2019 wines have received 100 points from major critics in recent weeks, including Antonio Galloni and Neal Martin from Vinous, William Kelley (The Wine Advocate) and Jeb Dunnuck.
The vintage has been highly praised by critics, who have not only agreed on its exceptional quality but have also commented on the value it offers. Released during the Covid-19 pandemic, the vintage was largely priced in line with market conditions at the time and has been considered one of the biggest En Primeur successes in recent years.
Dunnuck has been the most generous, awarding seven wines a perfect score, versus five for Kelley, two for Galloni and one for Martin.
As you can see in the table below, all of the 100-point wines have risen in value since release.
This recent praise has influenced market demand. In the weeks following the reports, both Château Trotanoy and Vieux Château Certan have set new trading records. Trotanoy last traded at £2,834 per 12×75, up 13.9% on its release price, while Vieux Château Certan last sold at £2,936 – a 38.5% rise.
More broadly, the 2019 vintage has been the second-most traded Bordeaux vintage by both value and volume year-to-date.
