What is La Place de Bordeaux? Does la Place only deal with fine wines? What’s the relationship between la Place and the En-Primeur system? How transparent is the Place?

In this first episode of Inside La Place de Bordeaux, hosts Felicity Carter and Pauline Vicard sit down to discuss their understanding of La Place and challenge their own preconceptions of the system.

We speak to leading experts to understand their perspectives on La Place: Jane Anson, Mathieu Chadronnier, Tom Portet, Valentin Lillet, Axel Heinz, Christopher Lynch, Christian Wylie, and Philippe Newlin. With them, we examine the important fundamentals needed to understand this very unique distribution system, and discuss some of the most common clichés about la Place de Bordeaux.
