June 23, 2017

VIeux Chateau Certan in Pomerol rounded off the Bordeaux 2016 en primeur sales campaign with the announcement last week of a 28 percent price increase to 192 euros ($215) a bottle from Bordeaux merchants compared with 150 euros for its 2015 vintage, according to the London-based Liv-ex's Insight blog.

The percentage increase was toward the upper end of the range of top chateaux, with prices tending to rise as the two-month campaign progressed, according to Liv-ex.  

Neighboring Pomerol estate Chateau La Conseillante boosted its price by 33 percent to 150 euros a bottle, while Chateau Leoville Las Cases in Saint Julien posted a 30 percent price increase to 180 euros a bottle, according to Liv-ex. Chateau Ausone in Saint Emilion restricted its price increase to 9 percent, taking its wine to 588 euros a bottle.
