Vieux Chateau Certan have released their price only 6% down on the 2011, but with small production and a large following it is hardly surprising given the quality every year. 2012 is no exception with Parker rating it at (92-94) pts and a top success for the vintage. Whilst the price is higher than the 2008, global demand is far higher now and will surely sell.

L’Eglise Clinet is the vintage’s top wine according to Parker (96-100) pts and therefore the most widely awaited release of the 2102 campaign. Early indications have a release price of £1600 per doz. Denis Durantou’s offerings have been of an exceptionally high standard for many years and 2012 is no different. A reasonable price tag for the vintage when he sits at the top of the tree, this wont hang around for long.
