And here are a few comments from decanter.com

Haut Brion is on a par with fellow first growths Lafite and Margaux at €360 ex-negociant, down 45% on last year. Its sister wine La Mission Haut Brionhas dropped 64% on the 2010 price, at €216.

Chateau Calon Segur is €39.60 (down 40%), Clinet at €50 (down 41.8%), Angelus at €138 (down 38.7%), Ferriere at €19.60 (down 14.04%), Langoa Barton at €31.20 (down 29.90%), and Chateau Kirwan at €28.50.

But interest is low;

Max Lalondrelle of Berry Bros said that the wines that were released yesterday – Margaux, Palmer, Lynch Bages and others – last year brought in £8m. ‘This year, we sold £1.2m. Even with the fact this is a cheaper vintage, that is a huge difference.’
