Over the past few weeks, Liv-ex has examined the price variations – the highest and lowest Market Prices against the current and release prices – of Bordeaux wines from the 2007 vintage. The chart below displays the same data for the highly rated 2007 wines of the Sauternes 50 sub-index of the Bordeaux 500.

In contrast to the other sub-indices of the Bordeaux 500, all five of the wines in the Sauternes 50 index have dropped in value since En Primeur.

Yquem 2007 has fallen the most and is now available for £2,100, a 46.2% decrease on its release price of £3,900. The equally scored Climens 2007 (NM 98) sees the second largest variation in price. At peak, its Market Price was 37.1% above release. Since then, it has nearly halved to £650.

Suduiraut is now trading at £319, 23.1% below release.

Despite modest rises after En Primeur, Rieussec and Coutet have fallen over 23% and are now available at £295 and £225 respectively.
