The broadest measure of the market, the Liv-ex 1000 index, rose 0.8% in June to close at 471.65 – the smallest gain so far this year. The Liv-ex 100 index also went up 0.7% last month.

The subdued performance of the indices suggests increased buying caution in an environment of rising inflation and the possibility of recession. The Liv-ex 1000 has consistently outperformed the Liv-ex 100 over the last few months however, showing that diversity is key to the market’s ability to weather the current economic situation.

The Champagne 50 was the best-performing Liv-ex 1000 sub-index in June, rising 1.6%. Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque 2012, Dom Pérignon 2010 and Salon Le Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru 2006 were the biggest risers from the region, rising between 13% and 19%.

The index (50.8%) has now outperformed the Burgundy 150 (50.3%) over a one-year period.

Both the Burgundy 150 and the Rest of the World 60 rose 1.3%. Burgundy’s biggest risers came from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, while the Rest of the World was led by Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 and Taylor’s Port 2003 and 2009 vintages.

The Bordeaux Legends 40 was the only sub-index to decline, down 0.7%. The index, which tracks the performance of 40 Bordeaux wines from exceptional older vintages, experienced the biggest drops for wines from the 2000 and 1990 vintages.
