Critic Robert Parker has awarded only one potential 100 pointer in his provisional scores for the 2011 vintage.

Ausone was awarded 96-100 points, while Lafite was awarded only 90-93 in the estate’s worst performance since its 88 points in 1993.

The scores were described on Twitter as “incredible” and “making a lot of sense”.

Lafite’s poor scores echo Liv-ex’s merchant round-up which pointed to the estate as the “disappointment of the vintage”.

Parker described the vintage as “much better than I first thought and could turn out to be close in overall quality to 2001 and 2008”.
