Barton criticises recorking “racket” (France)

Anthony Barton has stressed his opposition to the practice of recorking old vintages of Bordeaux, dismissing it as “a racket”. The owner of second and third growth châteaux Léoville Barton and Langoa Barton confirmed that he refuses all requests from customers wishing to send their bottles back for recorking, a policy shared by many other Bordeaux producers, reports The Drinks Business. “I’m against recorking,” he stated, remarking: “99 times out of 100 it’s a racket.”
