Mixed messages. Whites – certainly at the top-end – are down on 2008 prices. At the high-end it is the reverse case for the reds. This is probably in-line with the respective qualities of vintages i.e. an average red being better in 09 whereas and average white being better in 2008….

Lastly, I will leave you with a story about concrete eggs 😉
