Now available to all: Bordeaux 2019 Opening Report, “The Value of Time”

Each year, Liv-ex publishes two extended reports analysing the market dynamics surrounding the En Primeur campaign; one ahead of the campaign and another at its conclusion.

Back in April, we released our opening En Primeur report, Bordeaux 2019: The value of time, exclusively to Liv-ex members. We’re now making it freely available to everyone. It contains 25 pages of in-depth analysis, and examined the Bordeaux market in light of the announced En Primeur postponement.

Key findings in the report:

  • Covid-19 disrupts the wine trade calendar and Bordeaux En Primeur tastings
  • The First Growths attract the greatest liquidity, but the Second Wines lead the price performance category
  • Lower supply chain profit margins had led to waning interest in buying En Primeur, while stock builds up in Bordeaux
  • Harvest reports and satellite technology indicate that the 2019 vintage is abundant and “very good to excellent” in quality, particularly across the top appellations

You can now claim your complimentary copy of the report (in English, French and German) by filling the form below.

In addition, our closing En Primeur report, Bordeaux 2019: The magic is back, was published yesterday. Liv-ex members have been sent a copy and can request further copies by contacting their Account Manager.
