Liv-ex in Schweizerische Weinzeitung: the top 100 most expensive red and white wines

The September and October issues of Schweizerische Weinzeitung (The Swiss Wine Magazine) featured two extensive articles on the most expensive wines in the world, using Liv-ex data and research.

The lists of the top 100 white wines (published in September) and the top 100 red wines (October) are based on the Liv-ex Market Price – the best listed price for a wine on the secondary market.

Unsurprisingly, wines from Burgundy dominate the two lists. Only three non-Burgundians feature in the top 100 reds: Le Pin 1982, Screaming Eagle 1992, and Domaine Jean Louis Chave, Ermitage Cathelin 1990.

However, the most expensive white wine comes from Germany. Egon Muller, Scharzhofberger Riesling TBA 2017 commands a Market Price of £138,180 per case, having risen 5% in the past year.

Two other vintages of the same wine feature in the top ten: 2010 and 1999. As the table below highlights, Egon Muller sits comfortably in the rankings and positions itself next to the big names of Burgundy – Domaine Leflaive, Montrachet and DRC, Montrachet.
