Liv-ex Newsletter: April 2016

By March 30, 2016Member updates

Welcome to the April 2016 Liv-ex newsletter 
With just a few days until the UGC tasting in Bordeaux, thoughts are very much turning towards the 2015 vintage. Take a look at the En Primeur pages either on the Liv-ex site or the Liv-ex blog for the latest critic scores, prices and news, which we will be updating throughout the campaign. We will be tweeting release prices (using #bdx15) and analysing the latest releases on our blog.We will also be emailing out our 14th annual EP survey on your return from Bordeaux, and would love to know what you think. It should only take a couple of minutes to complete and always provides a fascinating insight into the nature of the vintage – please look out for it.
