Liv-ex Power 100 reveals 2017 was the year of Burgundy

Posted by Rachel England on 21 December 2017

Liv-ex and The Drinks Business have released the 12th edition of the Liv-ex Power 100 – the annual list of the most important and powerful fine wine brands on the market.

Scores were calculated by grouping all the wines traded on Liv-ex in the last year together by brand, and ranking them based on four criteria: year on year price performance, trading performance on Liv-ex (value and volume traded), the number of different wines and vintages traded, and the average price. Individual rankings were then combined with a weighting of one for each criterion, except trading performance which had a weighting of 1.5 (as it combined two criteria: value and volume traded).

As reported by Liv-ex, key takeaways this year include:

  • The list contains 24 Burgundy brands compared to 19 last year, and 22 of the top 50 price performers are from Burgundy. The region’s success has been boosted by increased demand in the Asian markets.
  • DRC comes in fourth, and is the top-ranking Burgundy brand.
  • Lafite Rothschild holds on to the top spot for the second year in a row and ranks first for value and volume traded.
  • Bordeaux’s three biggest movers were St. Emilion brands Canon (+80), Tertre Roteboeuf (+50) and Figeac (+44).
  • The market continues to broaden with 769 brands traded, compared to 670 last year and just 265 the year before.

The full report can be found in The Drinks Business’ December edition, or online here.
