Bordeaux Futures Price Predictions

Bordeaux Futures Price Predictions

by Westgarth Wines May 01, 2019

The 2018 vintage is being reviewed as well-suited to  Americans who buy fine wine: potent, complex, and high-impact. But how much will they be willing to pay? Château Angelus was first to release their futures, doing so with a lowered price. Seeing as the 2016 bottles at market are still at their starting price, the château was likely trying to avoid another year of skittish consumers. However, it’s hard to say if the rest of Bordeaux will exercise such caution given the high scores being given after the en primeur campaigns.
