The prices of first growth châteaux have risen 30 times more than the price of bulk Bordeaux over the past 25 years.
After close to a fortnight’s hiatus, the Bordeaux 2012 en primeurs have taken off again this morning with some big name releases, including Smith Haut Lafitte and Pichon Baron.
Despite its 2012 vintage keeping a relatively low profile so far, Bordeaux producers are reporting good results and strong international interest in the run up to next week’s en primeur tastings.
