By now, everyone knows that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge influence over the Bordeaux En Primeur week scheduled for April 2019, causing its temporary annulation and bringing for a while considerable uncertainty in the market of fine wine.
Even though the event could not take place in its usual way, attracting a big audience made up of critics, investors, journalists and simple passionates, people still took advantage of technology and their widespread enthusiasm to make En Primeur progress. Virtual tastings kept happening on Zoom, Instagram, Facebook and other online platforms, as critics got the vintage samples delivered directly at their homes.
However, this unconventional En Primeur edition is finally getting into full swing as Châteaux have started to release their vintages on the market along with their prices. For example, Pontet Canet ( https://www.liv-ex.com/2020/05/pontet-canet-2019-released/ ), one of the most prestigious Bordeaux Châteaux, released their 2019 on the market, and critics like Jean-Marc Quarin and Jane Anson have also tasted the wine and released their scores.
Saturnalia in the last month has continued to collect data in order to add new Châteaux to the scores already published in March, achieving to this day early scores for more than 50 producers. If you want to discover for which Châteaux Saturnalia has been able to estimate the vintages score, please read our producers list at: https://saturnalia.tech/en/enprimeur2019-update/.
