Bordeaux’s 2009 vintage has been big business. It’s hard to think about the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been traded in what has to be the most famous young vintage ever for France’s premier wine region. It certainly was the most expensive.
I received a press release from Farr Vintners, the London-based wine merchant that arguably sells more top-growth young Bordeaux than anyone in the world. Farr says it sold more than $80 million of 2009 futures. The majority was sold to British customers, but a lot went to the Far East. The company also shared details on the top-selling wines by volume and by value.
