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.
