Top 10 best value wines of Bordeaux 2013

15th April, 2014 by Rupert Millar

Fine wine marketplace Liv-ex recently released the details of its Bordeaux 2013 survey where it canvassed merchants for their opinion of the vintage.

Montrose barrelsThe responses made fairly grim reading, with the year largely voted the weakest since 2007 when it came to quality and 78% expected demand to be 20% less than last year.

Reaction to the wines has been mixed and, more than most years, 2013 is divisive with Margaux for example being voted as being one of the best wines by some merchants and one of the worst by others.

Pricing is key to this campaign and releases so far have failed to set the world alight.

Some have struck a more positive note however, Lynch Bages and Rauzan-Ségla being the two main ones in this regard.

On previous form, the wines on this list are both well made and expected to be released at less than £500 a case.
