Elevage des vins : Comment alléger son budget barriques ?

Elevage des vins : Comment alléger son budget barriques ? | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
L’élevage des vins en barrique représente un coût non négligeable pour les producteurs. Le prix moyen d’une barrique de 225 l en chêne français se situe entre 600 et 650 €. Ramené à la bouteille, ce seul investissement se traduit par un coût de 0,7 à 0,8 € par bouteille pour une utilisation de la barrique sur trois ans. Sans compter tous les frais liés au travail d’élevage (ouillage, bâtonnage, entretien des barriques….) et les pertes en volume de vin. Des solutions existent pour alléger ce budget, Vitisphère a exploré quelques unes des possibilités disponibles sur le marché.

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.”

Best Wine In Box

Best Wine In Box
Grande Passione's insight:

The purpose of the competition is to taste wines in BIB and to name the best: “Best Wine in Box”.

Only gold medals for this first international competition dedicated to these wines in BIB and hence rarely presented for tastings.

Only the best will receive the “Best Wine in Box” medal.

Without taking into account price or appearance, the wines will be blind-tasted by category and by a jury of professionals and knowledgeable amateurs.
