Study reveals top restaurant Bordeaux selections
A fine wine’s prestige and clout on the international market is demonstrated by its distribution in the world’s top dining destinations. Data analyst Wine Lister has scoured 130 menus from the highest-ranked restaurants across six continents to find out which châteaux come out on top.
The results: Yquem dominated, as it did in the same study conducted last year, starring in more than 60% of venues, followed by Bordeaux fifth growth Château LynchBages — cited as a Bordeaux bestseller by the trade — ahead of all the first growths.
Lynch-Bages has overtaken Latour and Margaux since this time last year. Mouton has also moved up the ranks, present in 52% of restaurants surveyed compared to 50% in 2016.
Château Gruaud-Larose is a new entry into the top 15, replacing Château Montrose. See the full Bordeaux market study at Wine-Lister.com.
