All five first-growths released their first tranche, or allotment, in late June, at prices that floored even some trade veterans. Château Haut-Brion released at 500 euros ($612) per bottle from the cellar. Latour also released at 500 euros, while Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild and Lafite Rothschild all released at 450 euros ($550).
