Clos Fourtet, Conseillante and Figeac 2014 released

This morning has seen the Right Bank start to releases wines more rapidly now that the majority of Left Bank wines have appeared onto the market. Chateau Figeac started proceedings with a release price of €60 per bottle, up 25% on 2013 and 2012 resulting in a London merchant price of £575. Whilst this is potentially the highest scoring Figeac since the 1982 will it set the market alight?

Next up is Chateau La Conseillante 2014 released at €66 per bottle ex Negoce, up 15.8% on the 2013 and 14.6% on the 2012 with a London price of £640 per dozen. With 2008 comparable for a few pounds more and the 2012 receiving an upgrade recently it looks as though better value can be found by looking backwards.

Clos Fourtet completed the mornings Right Bank releases with a price of €50.5 per bottle, up 14.7% on 2013 and 12 on their 2012, resulting in a London price of £490 per dozen. With the 2011 and 2012 both scoring highly and with cheaper prices available on the current market it may be worth taking a deeper look at this.
