Yesterday’s blog showed that Mouton
Rothschild 2012
is currently the cheapest Mouton vintage available. Today’s
chart for Lynch Bages (L-WIN 10125762012) tells the same story.  Lynch Bages 2012 was released yesterday at €60
per bottle ex-negociant, and the London release price looks set to be
£670 per 12×75. This makes it 3% cheaper than the 2011 and 13.5% cheaper than
the 2007.

En Primeur campaigns work better when the consumer can purchase the new wine
at a discount to previous comparable vintages. It would seem that this year the chateaux
have priced the wines more cleverly than in 2011 – whether they sell through
remains to be seen.
