MERCHANT SURVEY 2015: GPL TO BE "BEST VALUE"
Grand Puy Lacoste tops the value for money category for the sixth year in a row.
Grand Puy Lacoste is expected to be the "best value" wine of 2015 en primeurs campaign according to the merchants in Liv-ex's annual survey and many expected demand to for the wines to be high.
Having tipped Château Margaux as the vintage's 'best' wine, for the sixth year in a row international merchants have said they expect the Pauillac fifth growth to be the 'best value' wine of the campaign - which is to say costing less than £500 a case on release.
Brane Cantenac, a label that has not appeared on the best value list since 2012, was placed second this time and the two Chanel properties, Canon and Rauzan-Ségla were joint third.
The top 10 value wines were:
Grand Puy Lacoste
=Canon = Rauzan-Ségla
= Domaine de Chevalier = Haut Batailley = Reserve de la Comtesse
As it does every year in the survey, Liv-ex asked the merchants to put together a 'shopping basket' of various wines along with the expected (not desired) price for each.
