Study re­veals top restau­rant Bordeaux se­lec­tions

Decanter - - MARKETWATCH -

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.
