BIX Update - March 2017

by Lewis Byrne (Client Reserves Manager)

In a month where stock market rallies have slowed and record streaks have been ended, BIX’s stock continues to rise well over the £1m value. That means there is a glut of amazing wine just waiting for a new home. From Cristal to Croft, Giacosa to Grand Puy Lacoste, Faiveley to Fevre; there truly is something for everyone and if you haven’t checked out our latest list, I urge you to take a look. Equally, if you think that your cellar needs a bit of a spring clean, listing your wines on BIX is quick and easy to do from your ‘My Cellar’ section.

Speaking of the online ‘My Cellar’ section, we have been busy making a few amends to improve the user experience.

We’d become aware that listing multiple wines was becoming a bit of a pain, to be frank, because each time you added a wine you were returned to the top of your cellar – even if the wine you had listed was right at the bottom of the page. To resolve this, we’ve developed a smarter ‘push’ system which now shows the addition of the wine to the broking list directly on your screen. In the same way, removing a wine from the list works in the same way.

2011 Imperial Reserva

To resolve another issue particularly relevant to larger portfolios, now when you click on a wine in your Cellar to see the product details, it opens a new tab, rather than redirecting away from the Cellar page. When you’re done with that page, you can simply close the tab, and the existing Cellar window remains exactly as you left it – rather than reverting back to the top of the Cellar (as per the above point).

Hopefully you’ll find these small improvements make it easier to use the BIX system for adding and removing wines from our list.

March Highlights:

Here’s a few things that have caught my eye this month:

Lynch Bages 1996one of many majestic ’96 Bordeaux that are superb to drink now - £720 DP

Krug Grande Cuvee in halvesa nod to my colleague Tom; a fan of the cheeky traveller - £280 per 6 halves DP

Richebourg, Hudelot-Noellat 2011 I know I keep harping on about Alain Hudelot-Noellat’s wines but they are nothing short of sensational - £2450 per 6 IB

Montebello Cabernet; Ridge 2013 en magnumone for the long term but will be spectacular out of magnum! - £800 per 3 IB

 

As the saying goes however, you snooze, you lose. Here’s what you could’ve won:

 

Lynch Bages 1989
Jacques Selosse ‘Lieux Dits’ Collection
Produttori del Barbaresco – a double mag vertical of 2008, 2009 and 2010
Romanee St Vivant, Hudelot-Noellat 2008 (see, it isn’t just me who loves his wines!)
