Bordeaux bounces back to normal trade levels

Posted by Rachel England on 11 December 2017 |

Bordeaux wine has returned to normal trade levels following two weeks of falling value and volume. The region reached 67.3% of market share last week, due largely to activity around First Growths – in particular Haut Brion. Its 2000 offering was the most traded wine this week, and remains the cheapest First Growth of the vintage.

Elsewhere, the Fine Wine 50 rose 0.3% to close the week at 354.85 – marking the fourth consecutive week the index has risen – while interest in Burgundy continued, pushing the region up to 20.1% of trade. ‘Other’ regions, which includes the likes of Australia and New Zealand, also saw its share of trade rise to 4.5% from 2.2% the previous week.
