Pricing Expected In Coming Days For Bordeaux 2014

April 13, 2015

Jean-Philippe Delmas, deputy managing director at Domaine Clarence Dillon (owners of Château Haut-Brion, Quintus and La Mission Haut-Brion) has indicated that prices for the 2014 vintages should be released by the middle of April.

Paul Pontallier, managing director at Château Margaux believes that the en primeur releases would be over by the end of May.

Delmas also addressed the lack of interest in recent en primeur campaigns and said that if demand is low for 2014 Bordeaux, it could very well be the final draw for en primeur, even though they still believe in the system.
