Sassicaia trades at £22,000 high

Bordeaux’s share of market trade dropped towards 60% last week thanks to interest in Burgundy, US and Italian wines. As Liv-ex notes, this time last year ‘low’ was classed as 70%, but that figure has fallen further thanks to a general broadening of the market.

The ‘legendary’ Sassicaia 1985, with a string of perfect scores, traded at just under £22,000 per case of 12. As critic Jane Anson has said: “Get hold of this wine if you possible can”.

Elsewhere, Margaux 1996 has been making waves again. The 100-point-scorer (Neal Martin) last traded for £6,000 per case of 12. Interestingly, this is around half the price of the 2015, which was awarded an almost-perfect 99 points by Martin.
