Super Seconds

Background

In the second tier of top Bordeaux, there are a number of wines which consistently reach heights which put them very close to – and occasionally alongside – the First Growths. These are commonly referred to as the ‘Super Seconds’, and consist of St Estephe producers Cos d’Estournel and Montrose, and the St Juliens of Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande, Leoville Las Cases, Leoville Poyferre and Ducru Beaucaillou. The quality levels are incredibly high and improving year on year and the volumes produced are substantial enough for these to be tradable through our LiveTrade platform.

Whilst the 1855 classification got many things right, there are a few wines which massively outperform their status; two of these, known as the ‘Flying Fifths’, are the Pauillacs of Pontet Canet and Lynch Bages. Both regularly achieve critic’s scores which put them at a level with the very best Bordeaux has to offer and their global presence and demand is significant; they therefore see regular trading activity through the LiveTrade platform.
