Angelus prices continue to rise

We first reported on the effects
of the St Emilion upgrade in November, when the ten most recent physical
vintages of Angelus were seeing on average an 11.3% increase in price since the
brand’s promotion, whereas those for Pavie were seeing only an 8.4% increase.

Since then, the gap has widened. Pavie’s vintages have
risen, on average, by 10.5% since August, while Angelus’s have risen by 19.2%.
Angelus was marginally more expensive than Pavie before the upgrade, but now
the difference is more pronounced. Angelus 2002 (LWIN 10060452002), for instance, was 3.4% more
than Pavie 2002 (LWIN 10138502002) in August (£1,328 compared to £1,284): it is now 21.7% more
(£1,578 compared to £1,297).

Although Angelus is moving up in price fastest, Pavie could be seen as offering the better value: its wines are not only cheaper but are also more acclaimed,
with an average critic score of 95.90 in the Liv-ex Power 100, compared to Angelus’s
score of 94.41.
