Critics’ scores

At the time of writing, Neal Martin (Vinous) is the only critic to have scored the wine. He awarded it 96-98 points and said it is ‘very tender and complex’. Further adding ‘this is undoubtably a great wine with a long-term future’.

Fair Value analysis

Today’s release is coming to the market above the 2018 and 2021 vintage, both of which have 97 points scores from Martin.

The 2018 is currently available at a 50.1% discount to today’s release. The 2021 will also be compelling to buyers. It last traded at £4,568 per 12×75, a 19.0% discount to today’s release.

When it comes to price performance, the 2017 has been the only vintage to have risen year-on-year. However, looking at the last two years, the 2019 and 2018 vintages have performed the best, with their Mid-Prices rising by 14.9% and 8.5% respectively.

The 2019 release was the first vintage at the estate overseen by new manager and winemaker Jacques Devauges. Devauges was hired by LVMH after he left neighbouring property Clos de Tart in early 2019, bringing him on to replace Thierry Brouin who had retired.  As a result, the Domaine has reset their pricing strategy to reflect the investments made in the estate.
