You know that things are bad when prices are coming down in Burgundy. What's next, champagne?
Anyway, the first indication of this is that 2 of our favourite producers, Didier Darviot-Perrin and Phillippe Chavy have come to us with an unprovoked price reduction of 25%. We were in a position of buying very little from them this year as it is not really a Puligny Montrachet kind of environment out there at the moment.
However, that is a major discount and we will be doing a big tasting / event in May to get people to try the wines and see the very real value we will be able to offer on these wines from the summer onwards. Hopefully, we will be able to deliver a bit of volume for the producers and give our customers a good deal.
Details will follow when I have them....
