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.

Château Beychevelle 2008 St-Julien, 4ème Cru Classé 12 x 75cl Bottles, £294

Château Calon-Ségur 2008 St-Estèphe, 3ème Cru Classé 12 x 75cl Bottles, £297
