    One wonders why they have released the older wine at a smaller premium than the younger wine. The ex chateau provenance for the 2000 grand vin is something quite significant which to many buyers will be worth the extra 12.5%. But an extra 21% for the much younger 2009 Forts looks like another example of curious Bordeaux logic.
