Lower Prices Unlikely For 2014 Bordeaux

April 06, 2015

Despite pleas from Bordeaux customers to keep 2014 prices down, producers have indicated that the request is highly unlikely.

Citing quality of the 2014 vintage, chateau owners have indicated will be higher than recent vintages. Dissatisfied buyers of previous vintages will likely see a "goodwill gesture" to try and win them back, but aside from commenting that lower prices would not happen, the goodwill gesture remains to be seen.

Prices for the 2014 vintage should be announced by mid-May.
