If I believe Bertrand Le Guern’s site, there are, this year 2010, 465 wines rated by critics, journalists and merchants!
Usually, only 100 wines are sold as futures in great vintages, it can go to around 300 some selling well some less.

A few wines are being released; this futures campaign will most likely be late due to the multiple factor: 2nd, even 3rd great vintage, asking price, Vinexpo, Japan, the American economy and these are just the recent news.
In the meantime, 57 wines rated with more than 95/100 by 6 critics.

Decanter published its notes for Saint Emilion Grands Crus Classés
Faurie de Souchard 3 stars 15.5
La Dominique 4 stars 17.5
Fleur Cardinale 4 stars 17 - like Clos des Jacobins
La Couspaude 4 stars 16.5
Le Prieuré 4 stars 17.5
Cheval Blanc 5 stars 20
Troplong Mondot 5 stars 18.5
