The Rhone 100 was the best-performing sub-index in June, rising 1.6%. It is currently the second best performing sub-index so far this year, up 6.1%.

Burgundy had a good month as well, its sub-index rising 1.29% just ahead of the Italy 100 (+1.27%) and it is the best performing index this year – up 8%.

After a very strong start to the year, the Champagne 50 was rather more subdued in the last month of H1, rising just 0.6%. Nonetheless, it is one of the better-performing sub-indices so far this year.

The Rest of the World 60 was the only sub-index to decline last month, declining 0.6%. That said, one of its component wines, Screaming Eagle, was the best-performing label overall.
