Twenty four wines listed at best UK market prices

Activity appeared a little dampened on the exchange this week with a slight fall of 0.84% in overall market value. Sellers nudged ahead with more activity than buyers, resulting in the bid to offer ratio reducing further to 2.15:1. This seems to reveal more caution in the market contrary to what most commentators are stating.

Trading results were mixed throughout the week with drops for the following:

  • Biggest Faller – Cheval Blanc 2007 £2,575 -7.4% since 06/02/15
  • Duhart Milon 2009 £565 -3.4% since 04/02/15
  • Margaux 2002 £2,760 -3.3% since 18/09/14
  • Lafite 2004 £4,320 -1.8% since 20/01/15

Stronger results came from more stellar vintages such as 2000 and 2009 but were still heavily focused on Bordeaux:

  • Biggest Climber – Montrose 2000 £1,100 +8.4% since 27/6/14
  • Margaux 2009 £5,000 +3.1% since 24/12/14
  • Ornellaia 2009 £580 (6) +2.7% since 30/7/14
  • Mouton Rothschild 2004 £2,770 +2.4% since 03/12/14
For this week’s hot bids and offers we have highlighted some great wines on all levels. There are some well-priced Barolo’s from Altare, Brovia, Giacosa on offer and a superbly priced Giuseppe Mascarello Monprivato 2004 at £550. For lovers of Vega Sicilia, there is an eight case parcel of the highly rated 2004 at £450 per 3. Those of you looking to secure some well-priced Bordeaux 2005’s currently in the spotlight ahead of Robert Parker’s 10 years on retrospective, Duhart Milon 2005 at £580 and l’Evangile 2005 at £1,550 are both priced to move against their current market prices.

As for bids, we have highlighted the strong positions which are still present for the Asian market buyers. Demand remains for certain wines despite bid value falling in post the Chinese New Year boom in January and early February. Beychevelle and Carruades de Lafite both have very strong to market bid prices alongside Lafite and Mouton Rothschild across multiple vintages. Remember to take a look at the full market listings on the links below as you will find plenty of available opportunities.

Enjoy your week.
