Bordeaux 2023 market analysis: Subdued reaction to Cos d’Estournel’s 38% cut

The pace of 2023 en primeur releases continues unabated with offers for Château Cos d’Estournel and others going out today.

The estate cut its 2023 release price by 38.7% against its 2022 offer. Despite the deep discount, several commentators picked out buying opportunities among the its back vintages, and one merchant said, ‘we won’t be endorsing it’.

Margaux third growth, Château d’Issan cut its price by 27% and there were smaller cuts for Château Pape Clément’s red and white wines.
