The 2009 prices are in brackets after the 2010 price. Despite a Swiss franc that’s currently 9% stronger versus the Euro than it was this time last year, there are ‘real’ 10% increases at 1er and GC level – let’s call that a net 20% increase shall we(?)

The prices are edging nearer to their Swiss franc (2007 vintage) peaks – of course, the Swiss franc was 25% weaker when those prices were announced so effectively these are new ex domaine peak prices.

I expect Leflaive will point to lower yields, and the 2010s should really be very good, but I’m sorry to say this, but I see zero value here…

One response to “offer of the day – Leflaive 2010…”

  1. Thomas De Waen

    Some of the top end white burg producers have gotten a bit whacky with prices. The value, absolute or relative, just isn’t there anymore in my mind for Leflaive, Lafon and, dare I say it, Roulot…

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