Roumier 2011 prices

Just got the 2011 Roumier prices from one of the European merchants I use.

Prices up on average 6.5% in €s

Biggest increase: Cras (up 15%)
Smallest increase: Corton Charlie (flat)
Bonnes mares price: €125 (nice way to check whether your merchant is screwing you)

That’s definitely inflation busting but could have been much worse?

Wish I could find Roumier BM for ~$165 USD. I guess every US retailer is screwing us.

Amen

Wholesale from Diageo is far above that price, before the retailer fyi.

But not anywhere near 600+ being a “reasonable” markup. I have no problem with retailers charging what the secondary market sets the price at. That is their choice. With all the US retailers I buy from, the “deal” is I buy what is offered, vintage in and out, and they don’t screw me, so I don’t screw them. My Roumier BM was 350-450 in 09. Fortunately, I have built some great relationships abroad and get some crazy prices ('10 Faiveley Moose, 3 bottles at 700 per).
