Bordeaux 2005 hotting up ahead of reappraisal by Parker

Overall activity on the exchange has been positive during the course of the week with an increase of 2.23% in position value, reaching the £4.6 million mark. Sellers have been more active with a healthy 4.85% rise in offers and some fantastic new wines on offer. Do check out all the new wines listed this week, easily found on the download buttons below.

As they approach ten years of re-appraisal by Robert Parker at the end of the month, Bordeaux 2005’s have started to pick up more traction over recent weeks. Therefore not surprising to see wines such as Cos d’Estournel moving 17.5% since early October. With plenty of 2005’s on offer, it’s definitely worth a filter through to see gems up for grabs such as Haut Bailly, Palmer and Troplong Mondot at solid prices. There is a particular thirst for First Growths as well so do get in touch if you are in a position to offer stocks.
