The price you see is ‘delivered’ but ex 8% Swiss purchase tax. Where you see (—) this means was not offered in the previous period. Of course, the new(ish) owners of the Clos des Lambrays are slowly increasing prices – as you would expect – despite very comfortable yields for the Morey domaine in 2017 and 2018. That said, compared to the pricing of d’Angerville, I would say that they are still ‘competitive!’

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Well, to talk of Burgundy prices as “competitive” is of course relative, but the prices of white and red Burgundies has escalated in recent years, and I shake my head in disbelief at the prices now demanded for them. The prices of Burgundy seems to have out-paced the increases for other regions in France and beyond.

      Relative indeed. There’s certainly an element of ‘catching up’ with other regions whose prices were ballooning much sooner than those from the département of the Côte d’Or. The combination of neighbours’ (pricing) jealousy and even more-so the rise of the importance of the secondary market which is coupled to a certain scarcity for many appellations (versus demand) has effectively set what wine can ultimately(?) be sold for, is probably most to blame. But enough of excuses – you are right 🙂

    Once upon at time I used to buy Lambrays GC regularly – but not for a while & absolutely won’t at current prices – but the current owners won’t care of course. The new Burgundy paradigm? Thank heaven I have the back cellar. Sad.
