Parker - Bordeaux 2009

He still has a major influence on prices for consumers and clients follow his 100 points and other good notes. Even historical crus, those of 1855, careful and respectful of customs in Bordeaux and “normal” customers, can’t even resist increasing their prices, even if they are “reasonable”. Five minutes after being released, the market, speculation explodes even reasonable prices: Pontet Canet, Trotanoy, Gracia, La Fleur Petrus, Duhart Milon Rothschild, Hosanna are examples to date of significant increases.

If some merchants, English traders, announce wines on sale, offer more, others take over and after a while, you never know exactly why, a balance between supply, demand and price is created.
