Bodeaux prices break records for 2005
Chateaux Margaux and Latour are clocking up the most expensive prices ever for Bordeaux wine sold en primeur. As a result of the 2005 vintage being hailed as one of the greatest ever, these prestige first growths are releasing their wine at more than £4,000 a case, knowing that demand will far, far outstrip supply. Generally, prices for the first growths this year are up by an average of 300 per cent. En primeur is a wine trade term for wine that is sold before it’s bottled.
