The biggest risers in the 2022 Power 100

  • Pierre Girardin was the biggest riser in the 2022 Power 100 rankings, with a jump of 244 places.
  • The top ten biggest risers were a mix of Burgundy, Champagne, Bordeaux, California, Veneto and Tuscany.
  • The high number of wines traded was the determing factor behind most of the risers.

About the Power 100

The Liv-ex Power 100 is our annual list of the most powerful brands in the fine wine market.

The rankings cover the year from 1st October 2021 to 30th September 2022 and are based on several weighted criteria including number of wines traded, price performance, average trade price, value and volume share.

This year, 422 wines qualified for inclusion, one up on the 2021 rankings.

The biggest risers this year

Unlike last year, when the biggest risers were dominated by Burgundy with the addition of Piedmont and California, the top ten this year were a mixed bunch, coming from six different regions.

Once again, Burgundy led the way with four wines, followed by California (2) and one each from Champagne, Bordeaux, Tuscany and Veneto.

The biggest riser was Pierre Giradin, which leaped 244 places to rank 53rd this year. The brand was moved by the diversity of different wines and vintages trading – a total of 54. It ranked 28th in this category.

The number of wines trading was the factor that pushed many of the risers, including Burgundian brands Jacques Prieur, Perrot-Minot and Lucien Le Moine, and Quintarelli Giuseppe from Veneto.

Other factors

However, there were some exceptions. The brands from Champagne, California, Bordeaux and Tuscany were moved by other factors.

For Egly-Ouriet, price performance was the highest-ranking category, where it placed 14th . This was thanks to an average Market Price change of 90.1%. It achieved 94th place in the overall rankings.

Meanwhile, Le Pin and Scarecrow climbed due to their high average trade prices. Le Pin ranked 12th in this category, while Scarecrow – 21st.

For the Tuscan Poggio di Sotto, volume and value trade share were the strongest attributes that moved it through the 2022 Power 100 list.

Other key findings in the report:

  • Burgundy reigns supreme in this year’s Power 100, with last year’s bullish momentum rolling into this year and reflected in a continued broadening of wines traded and price rises.
  • Champagne’s star continued to rise, with quality and value being the key drivers.
  • For the first time ever there are no Bordeaux labels in the top 10.
  • Bordeaux’s price performance was overshadowed by Burgundy and Champagne, but the First Growth’s held their own in terms of value traded.
  • The Italian surge abated a little, but Tignanello put in a stellar performance.
  • All the brands in the top 100 have risen in price in what has been a blistering trading environment.
