Mouton 2012 leads the way

The Bordeaux 2012 En Primeur campaign has really kicked into gear this morning with the bold and somewhat early release of Mouton Rothschild at 240€. Early releases from London merchants see an opening price of £2800 IB per 12 which may well pave the way for an interesting 2012 campaign.

For those members that would like a comparison to where the current release sits in regard to available back vintages in the market place here is a comparison of what is currently available with Cavex live best offers for immediate sale highlighted in bold:

2012 – £2800

2011 – £3600

2010 – £6500

2009 – £6000

2008 – £3800 IB – 1 case available

2007 – £3050

2006 – £4150

2005 – £4450

2004 – £3150

2003 – £3350

2002 – £3200

2001 – £3000 IB – 5 cases available

2000 – £9600 IB – 1 case available

It may well suggest that Mouton may have got their price right and this release finds a market. Time will tell if other Chateaux follow their lead.

More than ever, keeping a handle on what’s in your portfolio, its provenance, and its value is crucial to maintaining the integrity of your investment wines in-bond. Easy if you have a handful of cases and time on your hands. Not so easy if your collection is significant or you aim to invest more.
