Methodology

The average Liv-ex trade price is calculated using actual trades on Liv-ex from 30/04/2016 to 01/05/2017. To warrant a classification, at least five vintages of a wine must have traded in the period. The average Liv-ex trade price is expressed for a 12x75cl unit in GBP and is volume weighted.

The Liv-ex Bordeaux 500 index has moved 25% since the 2015 reclassification. Price bands have been adjusted accordingly.

The resulting classes are:

  • 1er Cru – £2,500 or more
  • 2eme – £688 to £2,499
  • 3eme – £438 to £687
  • 4eme – £313 to £437
  • 5eme – £250 to £312
