Clinet, Montrose & Domaine de Chevalier 2012 Released

A continual release of more Bordeaux 2012’s today with the appearance of quite a few top picks from the vintage. Chateau Clinet 2012 (92-94+) pts RP, has been released 12% down on last years price  and currently available ex London at £490. Whilst it may not flood out the door in this vintage it will certainly provide quality drinking over the next 15+ years whilst the 2009 and 2010 mature further.

 Prices in bold are available on the Cavex platform and prices lowest in the UK market.

Chateau Montrose appear to have made another great wine in a tough vintage this year, averaging scores around the 92-94 pts mark from most critics. The release price of £630 places it correctly in regard to back vintages in ratio to scores, but the 2008 at 95pts from Parker may still be a little more attractive to buyers this year.

Domaine de Chevalier Blanc released at £650 could prove to be one of the prime whites of the 2012 vintage with a high score of 94-96 from Neal Martin. It sits well priced, so could certainly be a white worth picking up and laying down for 20 years or more.

Domaine Chevalier Rouge does appear to be offering very good value for money in the 2012 vintage. High praise from Parker with (92-95) pts as well as high scores from Neal Martin and James Suckling.
