Haut Brion 2012 On The Move

June 30, 2016

While only a handful of Bordeaux 2015s have traded since release, the vintage is nonetheless of interest to merchants. Margaux, Canon and Lafite 2015 – which has traded – are the most searched for wines on Liv-ex over the last month.

Also of interest is Haut Brion 2012. Having been scored 93-95 in barrel by Robert Parker, its price soon drifted from the $3,720 per 12×750 release. In April 2015 the wine was trading for $2,925 when Parker awarded it 98-points in bottle. He heralded it as “one of the stars of the vintage” and prices shot up as a result, peaking back at $3,720 before stabilizing.

The 2012 vintage has been attracting buyers for several months now, and the recent En Primeur campaign has left them seeking value in back vintages. Consequently, Haut Brion 2012 is on the move again. Now at $4,785, it is still 13% below the $5,425 of the new 2015 release (98-100 from Neal Martin) – but will this gap remain for long?
