After falling for six consecutive months, the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 posted a rise in January. The index, which is widely considered to be the fine wine industry's leading benchmark, rose 3.97 points (1.39 per cent) to 290.30.
A decline in demand for top-end Bordeaux (most notably the First Growths) resulted in a price correction in the second half of 2011. First Growth losses weighed heavily on the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 and the index fell 20 per cent in the six months to 31 December.
Since the start of the year, however, a stabilisation in the price of the Premiers Crus has seen the market turn positive.
