Fair Value analysis


There is no significant correlation between Grand-Puy-Lacoste Market Prices and Neal Martin scores – the chosen critic for Liv-ex’s ‘Fair Value’ methodology.


Buyers looking for value in back vintages have several options. The 2019 received 97 points from Neal Martin (Vinous) and is available at a discount of 18.6% to today’s release. Likewise, the 2020 received 96 points and is available at a discount of 22.8%.


Others vintages to consider include the 2012, 2014 and 2018.


Critics’ scores

Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 96-98 points, highlighting the ‘peacock’s tail’ of black fruit on the finish. He lauds the ‘velvety veneer’, which he says gives the 2022 ‘more precocity and sensuality’ compared to other vintages. In his words: ‘A Pauillac endowed with huge potential’.


‘A brilliant classic in the making’ according to William Kelley (Wine Advocate), who gave the wine a score of 95-97.


Antonio Galloni (Vinous) scored it at a range of 92-94.5 points, calling it ‘a very pretty wine’ with a radiance that is ‘front and center.’


Jeff Leve (Wine Cellar Insider) rated it 95-97 points, celebrating the ‘intensity, complexity, and aging ability’ from ‘the earliest harvest in the history of the estate.’.
