With en primeurs week looming, hopes are high for a quick campaign, reduced pricing and vintage that is “better than expected”.

Speaking to the drinks business, Simon Davies, head of marketing at Fine+Rare said that after a recent trip to Bordeaux he had a “loose idea” of what the 2011s would be like and expected a “lovely, fruit-forward and perhaps early drinking vintage”.

Davies continued that he was not concerned about the quality of the wines though perhaps they would not be “as uniform as 2009 and 2010”.

In this view he is supported by Robert Parker, who has already done his tasting and recently posted his initial thoughts on his site’s bulletin board.
