2014 Cos, Haut Brion, La Mission Haut Brion, Talbot and Troplong Released

 

A flurry of new releases have appeared within the last 48 hours with Cos d”Estournel, Haut Brion, La Mission Haut Brion, Talbot and Troplong all released onto the market. It looks as though it will be a week of crammed releases rather than a steady flow, but that may well be a good thing.

Cos d’Estournel 2014 released at €84.5 per bottle up 3.7% on 2013 and -3.9% on the 2012, with a London price of £825 per dozen. With many cheaper vintages currently available it does appear that collectors may be best to sit this one out this year.

Haut Brion released at €240 per bottle ex Negoce, the same as Mouton Rothschild. Up 11.6% on the 2013 and the same price as the 2012 the London release price is £2,350 per dozen making this the cheapest vintage of Haut Brion currently available. With Neil Martin scoring this at (93-95) points similar to the 2001 and 2008 this may not be quite enough to whet the appetite to part with cash for two years.

La Mission Haut Brion has been released at £1420 per dozen ex London making this a premium release, but it has achieved one of the highest release scores from Neil Martin at (95-97)pts. However will that be enough to persuade buyers that the 2014 is worth spending an extra £200-£300 on the similar 2008?

Chateau Talbot released at €21.40 per bottle ex Negoce with a London price of £290 per dozen. They have ensured the market price is kept consistent for the last three vintages, but with a slightly better vintage the quality is there.

Chateau Troplong Mondot released on the Bank Holiday Monday at €57.60 per bottle ex Bordeaux, resulting a London market price of £590 per dozen. 9.1% up on the 2013 and 6.7% on the 2012. With the 2012 receiving an in bottle score from Robert Parker last week collectors may well be hunting for that more than the 2014. The 2008 looks interesting.
