Liv-ex reports that all of its indices rose in June, thanks largely to the strong dollar. The Liv-ex 1000 led the way with a gain of 1.4%, driven upwards by the Burgundy 150 and Bordeaux Legends indices. The Liv-ex 100 also gained 1.14% thanks to increased interest in the Bordeaux 2009 vintage.
While overall market activity calmed down at the start of July following a hectic campaign-driven June, First Growth trading has pushed Bordeaux’s market share up to 67.5%. Italy and the USA have also seen an increase in their share of the market total, compared to the previous week.
As Liv-ex reports, the recently released Ornellaia 2015 was this week’s most active wine by value. The last trade price of £1,550 per 12×75 represents a 29% increase on the release price of £1,200.
