A shot in the arm for EP14? Value in physical stock still reigns?

After what appeared to be a quiet week, the mill pond that has so far been EP14 sprang into life on Friday with the release of Duhart Milon at £400 per dozen. Causing one giant splash, it certainly made the market stand up and take note with this release making 2014 the cheapest available Duhart Milon on the market by a significant margin. How will this affect the comparable vintages over the coming months? Why not check the current market prices for vintages from 2000 to 2014 here. Perhaps looking at the analysis could there be a softening of back vintages in time?

Although there were further reductions on the days’ other releases in l’Evangile and Rieussec by 10 to 12.5% respectively, these seem to have fallen largely by the way side. Furthermore, the arrival of Chateau Beychevelle 2014 this morning released at €43.20, up 12% from the 2013 vintage. Available ex London at £415 per dozen and although it makes this the cheapest vintage available, it appears the example made by Duhart Milon has fallen on deaf ears.

Overall market value dropped slightly through the week on the exchange though the total number of cases on offer grew by 2.37% up to 2371. There is plenty to choose from so do take a look at all new listings on the links below.
