As the Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 Index once again ran flat, First Growth trade share fell to 27%. Following on from two weeks of rest of the world releases from La Place in Bordeaux, Yquem 2013 came out at £2,400 on Monday. No trade has yet been recorded in the secondary market.
Despite the First Growths’ overall low share of trade, Bordeaux trade rose above 80% for the first time in four months, with Montrose 2010 topping the value table. Meanwhile, all eyes were on the Bordeaux 2015 harvest – despite recent showers, will this turn out to be a great vintage?
Beyond Bordeaux, Champagne was the most traded region. Dom Perignon 2005 – released earlier this year, and scored 95 points from Antonio Galloni – saw good activity ahead of the imminent release of the 2006.
