In periods of market uncertainty, traders tend to offload
more expensive wines to minimise risk, seeking out value wines instead. As a
result, our movers table below sees high-priced Bordeaux and Burgundy falling in
price, while affordable but acclaimed Pape Clement 2010 (a 100-point wine) and
Montrose 2003 have seen solid rises. Champagne – which has shown steady growth despite underlying market conditions – has benefitted from buyers diversifying from Bordeaux, and
prices have risen for Krug and Cristal vintages.
