Liv-ex's family of indices are widely acknowledged to be the fine wine industry's leading benchmarks.
All of the indices are calculated using the Liv-ex Mid Price.
The Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 Index tracks the daily price movement of the most heavily traded commodities in the fine wine market
- the ten most recent vintages (excluding En Primeur, currently 2002-2011) of the Bordeaux First Growths.
- 50 component wines - the last ten “physical” vintages of the five Bordeaux First Growths: Haut Brion, Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux and Mouton Rothschild.
- Components are added in July of the year they become physical (2011s added in July 2014), and removed after ten years (2001s removed in July 2014).
- Each component is represented by one 12x75cl case.
