Haut Brion and Montrose see growth in their 2010s

Posted by Ruiqi LI on 21 August 2017


Probably an exception from its less active siblings, Latour 2005 ended up as the most traded wine by value this week followed by the uprising Haut Brion 2010.




After a few rounds of tasting, Robert Parker and Neal Martin agreed to leave their 100pts for Haut Brion 2010 and awarded Latour 2005 98pts. 




As shown above, Haut Brion 2010 has been very active since early 2014. Traded at £7,140 per 12x75, it set a new record for Haut Brion on the second market only 6% below the release price (£7,596) at June 2011.

Based on Liv-ex search data between Jan 2017- Jul 2017, Montrose was the sixth most searched wine after the incumbent quintet of first growth.


Since upgraded to RP100 in 2014, Montrose 2010 has been chasing after the 2009 in both quality and price. 

Ealier this month, the 2010 vintage was traded all-time-high at £2,030, making Montrose the only second growth in the top 5 trade by value this week.




While Parker scored both vintages 100pts, Neal Martin gave one-point priority to the younger 2010 and now it remains 10% cheaper than the magic 2009.



Speaking from regional share, Bordeaux was almost back to 70% with Liv-ex FW 50 up 0.4% on the previous week. Others regions accounted for 10.4% trade by value this week driven by Opus One and Penfolds Grange.
