2014 Bordeaux Sales Being Driven By American Buyers

by Westgarth Wines June 16, 2015

Bordeaux sales are finally making a rebound. While still 10 percent below 2011, the last high, 70 percent of Bordeaux 2014 wine futures sold through Sotheby's found future homes. Who are the consumers who buy premium wine from Bordeaux? This time around it is North America driving the sales.
