Extended report – The Rhone: Solid as a Rock

Our latest report, The Rhone: Solid as a Rock, which examines the market for Rhone wines, has now been published. For a time, this report, and others moving forward, are available exclusively to Liv-ex members.

Key findings in the report include:

  • The Rhone provides the cheapest entry point into the fine wine market for dry wines
  • A stubbornly low trade share by value masks an increase in the number of trades and a rapid expansion in the number of distinct wines trading
  • USA has been the biggest buyer, helped in part by critical appraisal from Robert Parker and Jeb Dunnuck
  • The price gap between the north and the south of the Rhone has widened over the past two years but they have taken almost equal parts of the region’s trade share by value
The report delves further into price and trading patterns, individual wines’ performances and vintage variation. It also explores how in a turbulent year for the fine wine market – and the world – the Rhone has continued to offer stability. To download your copy of the full report, click here.
