Vieux Chateau Certan Emerges As Top Wine of 2014 En Primeur

by Westgarth Wines April 26, 2015

Each year, Liv-ex surveys the international wine trade after the en primeur campaigns to get industry opinions of the vintage and other key indicators. The trade’s general view is that 2014 is not exceptional, but a good to very good vintage. Industry members, using the Parker scoring model, gave the 2014 vintage an overall score of 92 points (average out of 100).

Comparisons with the 2008 were overwhelming, although several respondents clarified that 2014 was a “better” 2008 “with more flesh”

The top ten wines from Bordeaux 2014 were:

1. Vieux Chateau Certan
2. Latour
3. Cheval Blanc
T4. Haut Brion
T4. Margaux
6. Montrose
7. Mouton Rothschild
T8. Lafite Rothschild
T8. Le Pin
10. Ausone
