BEST OF BORDEAUX 2015 IS CHATEAU MARGAUX, BEST QUALITY / PRICE GRAND PUY LACOSTE. THE HARVEST GOT 94.6 POINTS AND THE 440 MOST INFLUENTIAL WINE MERCHANTS, POLLED BY LIV-EX, SAY THERE WILL BE A BOOM IN DEMAND AND AVERAGE PRICE

Château Margaux is the best in the Bordeaux 2015 vintage and Grand Puy Lacoste is number one in quality / price ratio for the sixth consecutive year.
The 2015 vintage achieved an average score, according to Parker’s 100/100 point system, of 94.6 points, while three out of four wine merchants predict a growth in demand compared to 2014, and an increase in average price over 18%, thanks to the devaluation of the euro, say 440 of the most important buyers and sellers in the wine world, that Liv-Ex, the secondary market benchmark of fine wines polled (www.blog.liv-ex.com).
In the top five, the wine merchants chose Château Margaux, as a tribute to the late director of the Château symbol of Bordeaux, Paul Pontallier, the best in 2015 in two out of three, followed by Château Haut Brion, short listed by 40% of the wine merchants and Cheval Blanc has confirmed its third place.
Petrus follows at number 4, Vieux Château Certan number 5, Ausone number 6, Lafleur number 7, Palmer number 8, Mission Haut Brion number 9 and Lafite Rothschild number 10. Among the wines at less than 500 pounds per case, at least in the forecast, Grand Puy Lacoste is number one, followed by Brane Cantenac, Canon, Rezan Segla, Carmes Haut Brion, Clerc Milon, Haut Baily, Issan, Domaine de Chevalier, Haut Batailey and Reserve de Comtesse.
The vintage has achieved an average rating of 94.6 points out of 100, better than 2007 (88), 2008 (91), 2011 (91), 2012 (91) 2013 (88) and 2014 (92), but slightly lower than the 2009 and the 2010 (both at 96 points).
It is difficult to make comparisons with previous years, although many have compared the characteristics of 2015 with 2005 and 2001 and some even back in time to 1985. Commercially, the wine merchants expect an increase in demand in volume, exceeding vintage 2014 (73.9% of respondents), while some expect the same as 2014 (18.8%), and others even a decrease (7.3%). Almost all, however, agree on one aspect that is the sore point of last year’s en primeur Bordeaux: price, which should be about 18% higher than the not exciting 2014.
