The Liv-ex 1000 index – the broadest measure of the market – closed January on 244.58, up 0.8% on the previous month. All but one of the sub-indices rose, with only the Rhone 100 closing the month down, dropping 0.3% on December.
For the last two months, the Liv-ex 1000 has been buoyed by Bordeaux. In January, strong performance from a number of regions pushed the index level up. After two months of steady gains, the Bordeaux 500 gained only 0.04%. The steepest climber was the Bordeaux Legends 50 which gained 1.9%. The Champagne 50, which saw the greatest decline in December, also performed well, closing January up 1.8%.
