Robert Parker finds Bordeaux prices hard to swallow

 

the world's most influential wine critics is alarmed by the high price of Bordeaux wine.

"Bordeaux is focused too much on the wealthy Asian market," Parker said. "Despite the fact that China has so many wealthy people, it's a very dangerous game if they raise prices, because the world economy is very, very fragile."

It would be a "smart move" for top chateaux to sell the 2010 vintage 10 to 20 percent lower than the 2009 vintage, which commanded record prices, he added.

"If they come higher than 2009, we're going to have a big, big crisis."

 

and guess what: they did come out higher, and not by a bit!
