Several Bordeaux 2015 releases from Petits Chateaux have been announced over the past week. This morning, Chasse Spleen came out at €19.2 per bottle ex-negociant, a 10.3% increase on its 2014 release price of €15.2. It is expected to be offered by the international trade at £207 per 12×75, its highest ever release price. As the chart above shows, this is still below the current market prices of back vintages before 2011 – and it has a relatively strong score.
Other Chateaux have seen comparable increases on their 2014 release prices. Sterling’s weakness has widened the gap for UK buyers, as the table below shows. Even Lanessan, which has raised prices by just 2.2% ex-negociant, is up 10.5% for Sterling buyers.
