The first prices for 2009 Bordeaux are slowly trickling out. You can keep up-to-date with the latest en primeur release prices by following Liv-ex on Twitter, with the ex-negociant release prices (plus the equivalent prices from 2008 and 2005 vintages) tweeted as we receive them. 

But how long are we likely to wait before the big gun releases begin to appear? So far we've only seen figures for bottles priced at €15 and under and it's possible that the wait will continue until May – at least. Could the Hong Kong VinExpo in late May (25-27) be the watershed for the biggest names?
