More on fine wine prices

Back in 1984 a bottle of 1st growth Bordeaux bought pre-arrival from a good merchant cost about A$100 (up in famous vintages down in others). In recent years it has been more than A$400 ($700 in 2003). Adjusted for inflation it should be around A$225.

Looks like fine wine has been getting more expensive.

  1. I remember when I was growing up that occasionally friend of my parents might get very good Bordeaux. Now it seems to be the domain of the super wealthy!
