Top 10 best value wines of Bordeaux 2016

The 10 clarets expected (or hoped) to be the ‘best value for money’ this campaign – as long as they stay under £500 a case.

In Liv-ex’s annual members’ survey of the latest Bordeaux vintage, as well as asking its international members what they consider the ‘best’ wines, it also asks which wines they think will offer the ‘best value for money’.

The question and concept of ‘value’ in fine wine is much debated but in this instance it is generally agreed upon that it is to be hoped the wines will cost under £500 a dozen – and it’s not always the case that this happens.

The wines cover a reasonably wide range of communes and price points but, interestingly, are all Left Bank. A sign of the year or just the Médoc’s inherent good value?
