The top ten price risers from the Liv-ex 1000 are split across three regions. Increased interest in Barolo’s top producers is reflected in three wines made by Giacomo Conterno making it into the top 10. This includes the largest riser, Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 2004, which has leaped 156.5% in price.
Despite the Rhone 100 being the worst performing sub-index of the Liv-ex 1000, certain older vintages, including Guigal Cote Rotie Mouline 2000 have increased dramatically in price.
Within Burgundy investors have started to follow winemakers rather than vintages. Given the scarcity at the top end of this market, any additional demand can have a large impact on price in the secondary market, as has been the case this year with the wines of Armand Rousseau, many of which gained over 50%.
