I’m always looking for value – it comes from being a Yorkshireman – perhaps particularly so in the current economic climate; so whilst these wines are definitely not in the cheap category, they are often one of the top 10 wines of the appellation and are available in quantity. Even 5 years ago these wines were selling for over 100 francs a bottle compared to the current ‘wish’ of nearer 150 francs for a Henri Boillot. Whilst I haven’t tasted the 2007, from a pure price/expectation perspective, I see value here.
