What will be left in our memory from this 2006 futures campaign?
Cant doesn’t prevent us from raising a few questions, especially regarding the few chateaux who went to high in their price and once more one of the paradox of this industry, where even great professionals can be blinded and deaf when concerning their wine (including me).
Will there be damage? In any case, it is certain that one of Bordeaux criteria for all sorts of classification – the price – became a double edge sword, as much for chateaux , as for customers.
Chateaux that offer less and less wine, at least in first tranche, what do they do with bottles? Are they sold to other négociants, “more deserving”? Do they hold back to speculate, or are they meant for internal consumption? Please check the right box.
In any case, I am glad that it is all over, even if next year all of this will be forgotten….
