Bordeaux needs to “come out of the closet”

Some people might say, “We have to get out of our comfort zone”. Bernard Farges, chairman of the Bordeaux wine trade council (CIVcool smiley, preferred to be a little more sensational. “Bordeaux must come out of the closet”, he told the press on March 10. With sales of 4.15 million hectolitres in France and worldwide in 2019, the region posted one of its worst scores in 20 years and declined by 12% compared to 2018.

Sluggish market for Saint-Emilion

Sluggish market for Saint-Emilion

“Last December, the market started off well. There was demand from trading companies accustomed to covering themselves early, but in early February, the market slowed down. The situation can be explained by wines blocked in the ports of Marseille and Le Havre that were on strike in January; the Trump taxes; the depressed Chinese market; and finally the coronavirus”, commented broker Gilles Prince. As a result, prices are falling: at the beginning of the marketing campaign, they varied from €4,000 and 4,500 €/ cask (the same price as last year), compared with €3,800 to 4,200 now.
