The Liv-ex 1000 Index – the broadest measure of the fine wine market – closed January 2017 at another all-time high of 301.24. This is an increase of 0.5% on December’s close of 299.80. The index has now reached record highs for six consecutive months and is up 21.5% year-on-year.
Among the Liv-ex 1000 sub-indices, the Burgundy 150 (+25.4%) and the Champagne 50 (+22.2%) have increased the most over one year. The Italy 100 (+2.8%) made the strongest gains this month as buyers broadened their focus.
However, in January the Bordeaux Legends 50 (-0.9%) recorded small declines on the previous month.
