Opportunities in Batailley back vintages

As discussed in our analysis, the 2021 and 2020 vintages might be of interest. They are available at a discount of 11.2% and 10.2% to the 2022 release respectively.

While the 2019 is available at a very slight premium of 1.6%, it boasts the second-highest score of the past decade. Neal Martin (Vinous) scored it 95 points, calling it ‘one of the best values in Pauillac’.

2014 might be of particular interest to some buyers. Although it holds the same Neal Martin score as the 2015 vintage (91 points), it has achieved significantly more relative growth, with its Market Price increasing by 76% from its opening price (£250 to £440 per 12×75).
