2009 will kick-start the Asian futures market: Parker

Asian collectors and consumers are going to buy Bordeaux 2009 as avidly as the Americans bought 1982, Robert Parker says.
In the latest issue of The Wine Advocate, in which the critic publishes his scores for the 2009 vintage, Parker makes clear he thinks this is the vintage that will convert Asia to buying Bordeaux futures.
“The old song and dance that the Asians don't pre-pay for wines, preferring to buy in bottle, is no longer true. Americans rarely bought “wine futures” thirty years ago, but all that changed with the 1982s, and it will change for the Asians with the 2009s.” (source Decanter).
