The En Primeur wheels have finally creaked into motion over the last couple of days with a flurry of big name releases – out prior to the big Bordeaux wine fair in Hong Kong next week.
Chateau d’Armailhac marks the first major Pauillac and the first of the Mouton-Rothschild stable to offer their 2015. A crisp and red-fruited claret, we have stock available at £310/cs. Chateau Clerc Milon – the other Mouton-owned Pauillac – joined it’s sister property in releasing this morning. Very little stock seems to have been released but we expect to have some available – in 6-packs – at £240 very soon. Clerc is a far bigger, richer wine than d’Armailhac, markedly Pauillac in style and a success of the vintage.
