Although tastings only just finished, wines have begun to be priced for the 2011 vintage, fairly early in comparison with other vintages. Tasters and outstanding critics are publishing their comments as prices for this year are shared with the public, waiting in anticipation. Also interesting for this year is the fact that top Châteaux are leading the releases instead of the smaller properties. Lafite-Rothschild announced its availability yesterday, creating a bit of a stir at our Millesima office here in Bordeaux.
