March 26, 2014: Buying Bordeaux: What's Your Limit?

Bordeaux's 2011 wines have reached stores, but despite a wide selection of excellent ageable and accessible reds (see James Molesworth's tasting report in the March 31, 2014, issue of Wine Spectator), the vintage may have trouble moving through the market. It follows two superior vintages that were the most expensive in history, the Asian market has cooled off and, even with cuts from the previous years' futures prices, the 2011s were viewed as overpriced, turning off many consumers. The 2012 futures didn't sell well, and it remains to be seen how the small, difficult 2013 vintage will be priced, as the futures campaign is just about to begin.


How much are you willing to spend on a bottle of Bordeaux these days?
