I read an article published this week on the magazine Challenge congratulating Florence and Dominique Decoster for getting the Château Fleur Cardinale classified and for the “Coup de Coeur” received for the 2002, 2003 and 2004 vintages.
I also read an article in a newsletter sent by a broker from Bordeaux a few interesting notes on 2005-2006.
“The total sales of Bordeaux wines reached 5.6 millions hectoliters, for a value of 3.2 billion Euros. More than tow thirds of the sales were in France, with revenues reaching almost 2 billions Euros. Supermarket chains, as usual, were the major share with 43%, excluding hard discount chains.”
