Chateau Batailley, D’Issan and Lagrange 2014 Released

This morning sees the release of Chateau D’Issan at €30 per bottle ex Negoce, up 13% on 2013 and 7% on the 2012. This results in an attractive price of £295 per dozen in London as it sees it as one of the cheapest vintages available. However with the 2012 just re-rated by Robert Parker to 95 pts we think this will be a far better deal to take.
