Vintage Report - Bordeaux 2022
Haut-Batailley 2022 (6x75cl)
This lovely 2022 from Haut-Batailley is a clear sign that the estate is now reaching its potential under Lynch Bages ownership
A Leading Light of the New Wave Rioja Movement
One of the greatest value line-ups in Rioja scoring up to 95 points from the Wine Advocate's Luis Gutiérrez but costing as little as £73 per six IB
Talbot 2022 (6x75cl)
Jeb Dunnuck states that this is "one of the finest vintages from this Château that I can recall", with the Wine Advocate's William Kelley also noting that it is "especially impressive" and that is it "likely to emerge as this large Saint-Julien property's most exciting wine since the 1980s"
Clerc Milon 2022 (6x75cl)
Sandwiched between Mouton and Lafite, the Wine Advocate's William Kelley notes the estate's clay/limestone soils provide Clerc Milon with a 'distinctive signature that sets it apart from the rest of the portfolio'
Bollinger La Grande Annee Rose 2014 (6x75cl)
With a huge 97 points from Vinous's Antonio Galloni, its highest ever score, this directly competed with Cristal's Rosé and the top Rosé release from Cedric Bouchard in 2014
Lassegue 2022 (6x75cl)
The first vintage since the estate was elevated to Grand Cru Classé status in Saint-Émilion, they have has risen through the ranks in its appellation to become a very smart buy in recent years and nowhere is this more clear than with their new 2022 release
Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2022 (6x75cl)
With an astounding 96-98 points from Vinous's Neal Martin and 95-97 points from the Wine Advocate's William Kelley, this receives similar scores as the First Growths but is released at nearly 1/10th the price
Blank Canvas Reed Chardonnay 2021 (6x75cl)
This new superb single-vineyard 2021 Chardonnay receives the same score as Grand Cru Burgundy but cost less than all Villages releases from notable producers of this last EP campaign
Krug Grande Cuvee 171eme Edition NV (6x75cl)
While this newly released Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition is yet to be scored by any major critic, this is one of the most in-demand wines in all of Champagne and we expect it to sell out fast as it does every release
Christophe Billon Cote Rotie La Brocarde 2019 (6x75cl)
Christophe Billon now makes wines that are 'relatively modern, rich, and powerful' in style but Jeb Dunnuck argues that they never lose their 'Côte Rôtie soul'
Albert Lebrun Brut Grand Cru NV (6x75cl)
This is an outstanding Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs in individual gift boxes that has before never been imported into the UK that we can firmly stand behind in declaring it offers outrageous value for the money
El Enemigo Chardonnay 2021 (6x75cl)
This is a high-altitude white that over the last decade has cemented itself as the best value Chardonnay in South America and up there with the best value white releases from anywhere in the world
Batailley 2022 (12x75cl)
As always, quality is extremely high for the price and it looks to be one of the great value buys of the Médoc this vintage before one even considers the special label to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II
Laroque 2022 (12x75cl)
The Wine Advocate's William Kelley last year called the estate 'one of Saint-Émilion's sleeping giants' but we are more inclined to agree with Jeb Dunnuck's recent statement that they are now 'clearly one of the new superstars in the appellation'
Duhart-Milon 2022 (6x75cl)
Jeb Dunnuck argues that Bordeaux lovers need to snatch up this 2022 Duhart-Milon because this 'utterly classic, seamless, balanced Pauillac' is going to 'give the 2009 a run for its money'
2018, 2019 & 2020 from a Rapidly Rising Star of Beaujolais
The Wine Advocate's William Kelley has declared that her wines are 'warmly recommended' by him and Jancis Robinson MW has been impressed by her skill as a vigneron because her wines 'evolve beautifully with age, and yet they are compelling when young'
Beychevelle 2022 (6x75cl)
Released at a price lower than all physical cases in the market, secondary market pricing of Beychevelle is not correlated to scores and rather is ticks up over time as the wine becomes mature and more scarce
Tour Saint Christophe 2022 (6x75cl)
An estate whose wines that commands a huge amount of respect in Saint-Émilion for its consistently attractive price-to-quality ratio, Jeb Dunnuck goes as far as to say 'dollar for dollar, they’re some of the best buys out there
Langoa Barton 2022 (12x75cl)
Considering that one of the greatest vintages of its famous sibling, Léoville Barton 2009, scored 94 points from the Wine Advocate shows how far this vintage of Langoa has risen in 2022

How to Acquire and Manage a Fine Wine Portfolio
There has never been more interest in fine wine / whisky as an alternative asset class. In this video Cru World Wine co-founder and CEO Jeremy Howard discusses the four options for how private clients can acquire and manage a fine wine portfolio. The options are: i) a self-managed "DIY" portfolio, ii) an "expert-assisted" portfolio, iii) a "managed portfolio" and iv) a "managed whisky cask portfolio". These different options are all offered by Cru World Wine. Howard also walks through some basic strategies for day to day portfolio management, and shows how cost effective it is to maintain a fine wine portfolio today. The cost of storing Cru's Recommended Portfolio is just 9bps per annum (if stored in Bordeaux). This is cheaper than storing physical gold or silver, and cheaper even that many ETFs.2 December 2022
