Sauternes – the Best Value in Bordeaux by 500%?

The recent price releases from Bordeaux have got me thinking.  So much so that I have trawled through my old card index system with historic opening prices for both red and white wines.  It just doesn’t seem to make sense to me that wines such as Chateau Gazin are being released at the same price as Chateau Suduiraut, Chateau d’Angludet at the same price as Chateau Doisy-Vedrines.

The results (with the help of Steve’s maths skills) are fascinating – do take a look below at why we think Sauternes is the best value wine in Bordeaux by 500%.  Enjoy!  Bill Blatch

    Interesting post. Now tell me by what percentage (either at auction, live-ex or list prices) the reds and whites have increased in value? this is a significant factor when considering what to buy

    We’ll have a look at this Andrew but I suspect that similar patterns exist for older wines too (i.e. Sauternes of all ages is good value). A lot depends on what you are buying for – if it is for drinking then there is no question about where the value lies. We are preparing another article which will highlight this aspect but we will also look into the investment angle as well.
