LIVE opportunities: Sneak peek – the 3rd, 4th, and 5th most traded wines of 2020

Two out of the three were released this year.

The current 3rd, 4th, and 5th most traded wines by value in 2020 all come from the same region – Champagne:

Champagne trade in 2020 is on track to have its largest year on record. And in a year with not much to celebrate, the region’s performance has offered a beacon of light. The Champagne 50 is up 5.91% to the end of October with several individual wine performances far surpassing that.

Year-to-date performance is led by Cristal and Dom Perignon which are up 11.6% and 10.7%, respectively. Taittinger is up a more modest 3.6% this year, having been the second-best performer over the past 10 years. Complete year to date performance of the Champagne 50 sub-indices can be seen in the chart below.

In 2018 we wrote in our report ‘Champagne: a market without bubbles’ that “what history taught us is that it [Champagne] is a market mostly insusceptible to unsettling events.” In 2020, Champagne has once again proven just that.

All LIVE offers of Champagne, of which there are over £2m, are included below and LIVE offers of the top traded wines are respectively linked above.
