The 2011 en primeur campaign came to life again yesterday with a small flurry of releases.

Chasse Spleen, Bellevue (Saint Emilion), Suduiraut, Carillon Angélus and Doisy-Védrines were among the releases but for the most part prices remained above 2008 release prices by 7% to nearly 50%.

Chasse Spleen at €17.70p/b is only 1.6% down on 2010 but remains 31% up on 2008’s €13.5. Bellevue (Saint Emilion) at €35p/b is 21.4% down on 2010, 48.9% up on 2008, while Suduiraut was 7.2% down on 2010 at €45p/b but 34.3% up on 2008.

This follows a pattern already set by those few châteaux that have released albeit with varying degrees of success.
