The presence of some 6,000 importers, distributors and journalists from over 30 countries left the impression of decidedly strong interest in fine Bordeaux. The sort of frenzy one always encounters in great vintages was obvious at the chateaux hosting tastings organised by the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux.
With a nearly 43% increase in the number of visits compared to last year, the Union des Grands Crus registered some 20,000 entries during the three days of tasting.
French distributors were, of course, most numerous, while Great Britain, the United States, China, Germany and Belgium were among the most-represented foreign countries.
Congratulations to everyone involved on a very successful En Primeurs campaign!
