The Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 Index – the industry benchmark – closed September on 316.25, up 0.08% on the previous month.
The top movers in September came from Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne. DRC Richebourg 2014 was this month’s biggest riser (+13.3%), having also been the top riser in July but occupying the last place in the index in August – pointing towards greater volatility as prices continue to move higher.
Two vintages of Château Latour, namely the 2000 and 2003, also rose in September, helped by heavy trading across many vintages of Latour over the past few weeks.
The 2009 vintage of Louis Roederer, Cristal was up 12.1%, while the 2008 fell by 4.8% on last month.
Like the biggest riser, the biggest faller in September was from Burgundy. Domaine Ponsot, Clos Roche Vv 2015 was down 7.6%. Giacomo Conterno, Barolo Riserva Monfortino 2010, which was August’s top riser, and Cos d’Estounel 2005 followed behind, down 7% and 5% respectively.
