Bordeaux 2023 Market Analysis: Lafite-Rothschild released


Tasting barrel samples at Château Lafite Rothschild ahead of the 2023 vintage 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-exA global trading marketplace.

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 awarded Lafite a score between 98-100 points after tasting the young wine in a barrel.

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.
