Bordeaux Super Seconds find the bid

Yesterday’s trading activity 

Champagne remained at the forefront of yesterday’s trades, with Piper Heidsieck’s Rare 2006 and the 1995 and 1998 vintages of Krug all selling. 

Following Tuesday’s update on Chablis, Patrick Piuze’s Grand Cru Preuses 2020 found bidders and there was also interest in Sassicaia and Tignanello, which have seen trade for multiple vintages over the last few days. The 2011 vintage led trade by value for Sassicaia and 2019 for Tignanello.

Demand for Ducru-Beaucaillou

Considering yesterday’s update on the interest in Bordeaux, there was trade for several estates, most notably the Second Growth Château Ducru-Beaucaillou.

Ducru-Beaucaillou saw several vintages (LWIN11s) sold, with demand for the 2010, 2014, 2018 and 2008 wines in particular.

All four wines have risen in value over the past year and year-to-date. The 2010 has been the best-performer over these periods and is up 21.6% ytd. 

Meanwhile, the 2014 has been the second best-performer, up 16.6% ytd, but over the last five years it has risen the most in value – 33.5%. 

With a Market Price of £1,410 (12×75), it is also the least expensive of the four vintages. Neal Martin recently wrote a retrospective of Ducru-Beaucaillou for Vinous, covering the vintages 1934-2018 (see link below). 

In this vertical he scored the 2018 97-points, the 2014 95-points, the 2010 96+ points and the 2008 94-points.
