Bordeaux 2023 market analysis: Lafite Rothschild released

Merchants and analysts have reacted warmly to the release price of Château Lafite Rothschild 2023, which has been tipped by Decanter as a potential 100-point wine, as other Domaines Barons de Rothschild (DBR) wines also make their debuts in this year’s en primeur campaign. 

Château Lafite Rothschild 2023 has been released en primeur at €396 per bottle ex-négociant, down 31.7% on the opening price of the first growth’s 2022 vintage last year, according to Liv-ex, a global marketplace for the trade.

UK-based merchants offered the wine at £4,920 per 12-bottle case in bond (IB), as Lafite helped to set a tone for significant price cuts, year-on-year, in week one of the Bordeaux 2023 en primeur campaign. 

Decanter’s Georgie Hindle gave Lafite 2023 a score range of 98 to 100 points after tasting a barrel sample of the young wine.

A clear contender for wine of the vintage,’ Hindle wrote in her tasting note – part of a full report on the Bordeaux 2023 vintage that is set to be published on Decanter Premium on Friday 3 May.
