Develop a market positioning
We notice a large number of new world producers that are a threat fort Château Margaux. They come from Australia, South Africa and California. Their strengths are: better marketing, lowercosts, modern production techniques and increasingly good quality. Château Margaux has to reinforce its position if it wants to stay one of the leaders on the prestigious market of wines.
China seems to be an alternative to Château Margaux. There is a keen interest in food and wine in China. The consumption of wine is massive and the development of the wine industry could be very promising. Indeed, Paul Pontallier, general manager of Château Margaux, said China is the world's fastest ever growing wine market and the company aims to position Château Margaux at the very top. What we plan is to position Château Margaux as a luxurious wine leader in China. For future, what we expect is that China represents Château Margaux’s second largest market the first next year and may become the first one from the two next years.
Moreover, Gao Ming, vice president and Shanghai general manager of Ruder Finn Asia, claims that China is looking for prestige and luxury, that’s why Chinese luxury consumers would appreciate such a prestigious brand. (By: Erica Ng, China – Shanghai, Published: Aug 03, 2010)
Château Margaux will keep the high quality and wine characteristics that make its famous reputation.

In some regions they are encountering divergent trends. Related Articles Climate Dune Global climate model Season Desert Savanna Based on models and observations, climate scientists have devised a simplified formula to describe one of the consequences of climate change: regions already marked by droughts will continue to dry out in the future climate. Regions that already have a moist climate will experience additional rainfall. In short: dry gets drier; wet gets wetter (DDWW). However, this formula is less universally valid than previously assumed. This was demonstrated by a team of ETH climate researchers led by Peter Greve, lead author of a study recently published in Nature Geoscience. Traditional analyses use technology that can comprehensively describe climate characteristics above the ocean, but is problematic over land. While this fact was mentioned in said studies, scientific and public discourse has neglected this aspect so far. In their new study, the ETH researchers in the group headed by Sonia Seneviratne's, professor for land-climate dynamics, take into account the specific climatic properties of land surfaces, where the amount of available water is limited when compared with the ocean. In her...
