Chateau Haut-Brion 2022

On the 21st June 2023, we now see the release of the Premier Cru wine from Pessac named Haut-Brion, and the price is up 22.9% on last years release. The ex negociant price is 516 Euro a bottle. The wine is being offered by the international trade for £6,180.00 per case of 12 bottles at 75cl each according to Liv-ex, and this will result in an increase of 21.2% on the opening price of the 2021's.


At this price, the 2019 and 2020 vintages look better value in relation to today’s release. See more pricing analysis below.


Fair Value analysis

Haut-Brion Market Prices are 53.9% correlated to Neal Martin scores – the chosen critic for Liv-ex’s ‘Fair Value’ methodology. At £6,180 per 12×75, the new release comes above the fair value line.


As such, based on the chart below, buyers looking value may want to consider the 2019 vintage. The wine received a score of 99+ points from Neal Martin (Vinous) and is available at a discount of 23.8% to today’s release.


The 2020 also sits below the fair value line. With 96 points from Neal Martin, it is available at a 31.2% discount to the 2022. The lower-scoring 2017 and 2012 also look attractive.


Critics’ scores

Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded it a barrel range of 96-98 points, praising its medium-bodied palate that is ‘blessed with unerring symmetry’. He noted the 2022 Haut-Brion’s ‘bewitching’ texture and a finish that is ‘almost pixelated’. In his words: ‘magnificent, but not necessarily the best wine that Delmas oversaw in this vintage’.


‘A classic, breath-taking expression of Haut-Brion’, noted Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Independent) who rated it at 97-99+ points. After the first ten years in the bottle, she expects to ‘watch it soar’.


James Suckling scored the wine at 98-99 points, underscoring the ‘fascinating aromas’ of currants and cedar with sandalwood and peaches. He highlights the ‘interesting’ merlot majority in this year’s blend (53.6%), an anomaly for Haut-Brion.
