Bordeaux 2009 – Do the Chinese really buy En Primeur?

Or do the chinese not use google, chinese wine buyers not use google or does google search insights not include data from china (did that whole routing via Hong Kong thing really mess things up or what?)?


And what’s with these Moroccan wine lovers?


And who were all the prescient folks in early 2008 looking up 2009 wine futures already?

Bordeaux 2010 is already getting traffic too – France at 100, Morocco at 16, Belgium at 5 … maybe all the Chinese buyers route through Moroccan proxies?

By contrast with Bordeaux, if I look at Burgundy and then narrow to Food and Drink, the Chinese top the list (at least the HK Chinese do):


Maybe the smart money should be buying Burgundy now ahead of what looks like another good vintage in Bordeaux?
