The Market

ever upwards…

ever upwards…

I’m guessing that it’s not a good idea to hold your breath whilst waiting for lower prices 😉 At grand cru level, land sold for between $2.7m and $12.9m a hectare (2.47 acres) in 2013, the ministry wrote. The average per-hectare price rose from $5.2m in 2012. It has been rising steadily since 1996, when […]

a few tweets and links of interest…

First, Clive on 2004 – I feel my wrists being slapped…! 😉 Second, one wonders why he was able to accumulate so much – but hey – it’s just another profit… Third, what really is this UNESCO thing? Fruit set is also plentiful in Beaune 1er cru "Les Grèves". Loose clusters & zero disease pressure […]

welcome back: c marey & comte liger-belair…

Louis-Michel Liger-Belair has been a busy boy. Not only has he been re-designing the family Audi A3*, but he has been remodelling his affairs in Vosne-Romanée too. The name of the business C.Marey was first recorded in Nuits St.Georges in 1720. In 1852, Guillaume-Félix Marey, together with the Comte Liger-Belair joined their business together to […]

watching through the window…

Of-course it can’t always be sunny, otherwise I wouldn’t be here! But like a good (adopted) Swiss, I choose not to venture out when I can’t see the ground under my skis – although I may go for a jog! Will change resort tomorrow, finally home on Sunday. Still, that means time to write a […]

burgundy 2012 – already past the peak of interest?

burgundy 2012 – already past the peak of interest?

2012s tasted in Beaune last week… Are we seeing a peaking of Burgundy consumer interest – despite the mini industry that has become the London En Primeur tasting ‘circuit’…(?) I heard that there were to be 34 tastings in London this month – a new record – and certainly last week when I was in […]
