Critics’ scores

‘Unequivocally one of the finest Right Bank wines in 2021,’ said Neal Martin (Vinous) who rated it 95-97 points.

His fellow critic at Vinous, Antonio Galloni, was a little more reserved with a score of 93-95 points. Although he said its ‘class is evident’, he thought it was ‘not as explosive as recent vintages’.

The wine was also rated 94-96 points by Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent), 97-points by Jane Anson and 94-97 points by William Kelley (Wine Advocate).

Fair Value analysis

Today’s opening price comes at around a 9% premium to the price implied by Liv-ex’s Fair Value methodology.

Buyers looking for value might be interested in the 2015 and 2020 vintages, which carry a higher score of 97-points from Martin, but cost less than today’s release.
