Demand for Bordeaux 2009 has surged following the release of Parker's in-bottle scores. (Visit Erobertparker.com for his full vintage report.) In the last 24 hours, 2009 has accounted for 62 per cent of Liv-ex turnover, with the Super Seconds generating the largest share of trade.
Many of the critic's 19 "perfect" wines have seen prices climb rapidly this week. Pavie has risen 18 per cent to £2,130, Ducru Beaucaillou is up 19 per cent to £2,130 and Pontet Canet has risen 26 per cent to £1,575. The two 100-point First Growths, however, have yet to benefit from Parker's praise. Are their scores already in the price?
The chart below shows Pontet Canet's price movement since release and is taken straight from the pages of Cellar Watch. Check back later today for another trading update.
