  • Bordeaux, Burgundy, Italy and the ‘others’ increased their weekly share of trade.
  • Château L’Évangile 2011 was this week’s most traded wine by value.
  • Insights included analysis of the most traded Italian wines outside Tuscany and Piedmont and the publication of our Bordeaux 2021 En Primeur report.

Regional share this week

Bordeaux’s share of trade increased to 33.2% this week. Its 2019 vintage has continued to enjoy increased demand following in-bottle tasting reports from major critics. Mouton Rothschild, Smith Haut Lafitte and Rauzan-Ségla have been amongst the most traded Bordeaux 2019s this week.

Burgundy also made gains this week, increasing its share from 18.8% to 24.1%. Domaine Bizot Échézeaux Grand Cru, Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru and Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru were some of the leading names that traded.

Italy improved too, with increased activity for both Tuscany (7.9%) and Piedmont’s (7.2%) wines. Other Italian wines accounted for 1.4% of the country’s trade by value. Earlier this week, we looked at the most traded wines from Abruzzo and Veneto over the past year.

Trade for the ‘others’ was led by Chile (2.1%) and Germany (1%).

L’Évangile 2011 became this week’s most active wine, having last traded at £1,162 per 12×75. While this price represents just 8.8% premium on release, it marks a record-breaking trade in the secondary market.
