Recent trading activity 

Bordeaux and Burgundy took almost equal shares of this weekend’s trade, accounting for 41.9% and 40.1% respectively.  

Château Mouton Rothschild 2000 continued to be the most active wine but this time trading 2.6% above its Market Price.  

Tuscany also picked up on the back of Solaia 2015, Tassi Brunello di Montalcino Franci Riserva 2016 and Sassicaia 2010. The latter last changed hands up 152.3% on its release price. 

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW’s La Place scores 

Lisa Perrotti-Brown recently published her scores for many of the fine wines due to be released via La Place de Bordeaux this September on The Wine Independent. 

Her highest score went to Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jacques Perrin 2020 (98+ points), and there were 97-points each for Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Mundus Bacillus Terrae 2019, Joseph Phelps Insignia 2019, Pajzos Aszu Esszencia 2016 and Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2013. 

Philipponnat’s Clos des Goisses 2012, offered through La Place for the first time last year, has been the best-performing wine from this autumn pool of releases. As the chart above shows, it has risen in value by 42.8% – 18.8% year-to-date. 

Among the wines scored 96-points were Telmo Rodriguez’s Yjar 2018. The inaugural 2017 vintage was released last year and has seen several trades, rising 7.4% in price. 

As was covered in our recent report on La Place, Yjar has been a surprise success among last year’s releases considering it is a brand new wine and from Spain – a country with a relatively small footprint in the secondary market. 

The report covers recent developments of the autumn release campaign and how it became the marketplace of choice for leading fine wine regions outside of Bordeaux.  

Also examined are the most in-demand wines from the Rest of the World and the post-release performance of both new and established brands. 

The report is currently available to Liv-ex members only.
