Regional trade this week
All eyes were on Champagne this week. The region experienced its highest weekly share of trade year-to-date of 34.5%. Its previous high was in September when it accounted for 20.6%.
Trade for Burgundy fell very slightly to 21.4%, while Tuscan trade rose to 9.5% of the total. Piedmont saw a tiny movement from 1.7% to 1.8%.
Trade for the Rhône and USA fell, especially the USA which hit a low of 0.6%, its smallest weekly share this year.
This week’s top traded
Two wines from Dom Pérignon were among this week’s most traded labels – the Lady Gaga Rosé 2008 and Oenothèque 1996.
The Oenothèque’s last trade of £7,392 per dozen marked a new high for the wine. It last traded in November 2021 for £3,856.
Grower Champagne Emmanuel Brochet’s 2008 Extra Brut recorded its first trades this year. A further sign of the broadening market for Champagne.
Tuscan trade was led by Tignanello 2019, which has been the brand’s top-selling vintage this year by value and volume.
This week we published our annual Power 100 report ranking the 100 leading brands in the secondary market. Burgundy’s price performance over the past year put many of its brands in the upper echelons. For the first time no Bordeaux wines made it into the top 10.
Other updates this week included a look at the secondary market performance of Dom Pérignon vintages, the highest-scoring Tuscan wines rated by The Wine Independent and the best value vintages of Château Nénin in Pomerol.
