Versus the 2007 prices this time last year, these are quite significant price reductions, and for an even better vintage too (in general – I didn’t taste the Leflaives). So perhaps the reductions recently seen on the Henri Boillot pre-arrivals will actually be reflected in retail prices in a more general context.

Whilst Leflaive are clearly a ‘premium brand’, I still consider these prices too high – but possibly closer to a sustainable ‘niche’.

    These are really serious reductions, and an interesting bit of evidence about the health of the market even for a toppest producer. Must be brutal for the second tier.

    Best regards Pablo
