Rising tide of unsold Bordeaux

Rising tide of unsold Bordeaux | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
“Apart from the First Growths, availability of the 2013s is well below average,” said Liv-ex director Justin Gibbs. “That’s not because it sold through. It didn’t even get to the market as the merchants and négociants didn’t buy any. In fact it didn’t get out of the château door. Overall there’s a lot of stock in the distribution chain, and the merchants and négociants cannot afford to absorb any more. Their balance sheets won’t support it.”
Grande Passione's insight:

Another evidence that the Châteaux are in the process of breaking up the traditional distribution channels? Who are the Liv-Ex 440 members?  Why so much bad press about the primeurs campagin 2014? Do traditional merchants sense the same? Is today's market open to have direct relationships with the Châteaux?

Weak euro boosts Bordeaux’s prospects

Weak euro boosts Bordeaux’s prospects | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
Liv-ex have been looking at exchange rates as one reason why the fine wine market is showing distinct signs of life after an unprecedented four years of decline. “Confidence in the market appears to be returning with the Liv-ex 100 increasing for 6 months in a row since its low in July,” said Liv-ex MD and co-founder, James Miles. “In January the index was up 1.8% on record volumes for the exchange. The weakness of the Euro and a busy market ahead of the Chinese New Year have certainly been contributing factors, together with a sense that there is some value in the fine wine market at these levels.”
