Burgundy and Bordeaux dominated trade over the weekend of 13th-14th August and into Monday (15th August). Bordeaux trade centered firmly around the First Growths. From Château Lafite Rothschild, the 2015, 2016 and 2018 were most active, while the 2009 vintages of Château Margaux and Château Mouton Rothschild were also in demand, as was Château Latour 2013.

Domaine Armand Rousseau leads trade

High value Burgundies from Domaine Armand Rousseau stole the show this weekend. The 2001 and 2016 vintages of the estate’s grand cru Chambertin both traded at all-time highs.

The 2001 has significantly risen in price since its release (over 6,700%). Today a full case of 12 bottles commands a Market Price of £56,000. It has continued rising in value this year and is up 90.7% year-to-date.

The Clos de la Roche 2013, Chambertin Clos de Bèze 2000, Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes 2004 and the 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 vintages of Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Cazetiers’ also traded this weekend, in addition to other wines from the estate.

The Chambertin Grand Cru from Domaine Armand Rousseau has been the third most-traded red Burgundy so far this year, led by trade for the 2019 vintage.

Armand Rousseau jumped back to third place in last year’s Fine Wine Power 100 list, up from 25th place in 2020 and having topped the list in 2019.
