Interesting Year Awaits Fine Wine Market

January 10, 2015

With the first full week of trading in the books, 2015 looks like it might be the year that breaks the unprecedented four year decline of the fine wine market.

 

What to watch in 2015:

Bordeaux 2005, once hailed as possibly the greatest vintage ever, took a hit once Robert Parker's in bottle scores were released. The scores, which many say were underrated initially, are being upgraded. The 2005 Mouton Rothschild was upgraded from 96 to 99+ points. This upgrade puts it above the 2000, 2009 and 2010, making the vintage one to keep your eye on in 2015.
