Bordeaux 2008: Calon-Ségur and Beychevelle
More new releases today, the most exciting being an extremely well-priced Calon-Ségur. Always attractive en primeur, the 2008 is an impressive effort (17.5+ points from Jancis Robinson), and at less than £300 a case we expect this to be very popular. Also good value, Beychevelle at £249 offers a soft, elegant style of St-Julien.
Also released today are Palmer and the second wine Alter Ego de Palmer. At £1000 a case for the grand vin and £275 for Alter Ego, we feel that there are better value wines available this year, although the wines are delicious and available for those who are interested.
Customers should read our vintage report, and be familiar with the timetable for Bordeaux 2008 before purchasing. En Primeur wines are priced for in-bond delivery and do not include duty, VAT and handling.
