Regional trade share
Bordeaux’s trade share declined this week, down to 34.7% after hitting 41.8% last week. The difference in trade share was spread across the remaining regions, which all saw their shares of trade rise.
Trade for the ‘other’ regions was especially diverse this week; encompassing Argentina (0.2%), Australia (0.3%), Chile (0.1%), China (0.1%), Germany (0.4%), New Zealand (0.1%), Portugal (0.1%), Spain (0.8%) and Switzerland (0.2%).
The top traded wines from these countries included Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard White Bones Chardonnay 2014, By Far RP Cote Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019, Dönnhoff Niederhauser Hermannshöhle Riesling GG 2021, and Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofi 2018.
The week’s top traded wines
However, the top traded wine of the week was Château Angélus 2014. The wine has been rising in value since 2021 and hit a new trading high in mid-November this year.
Sassicaia 2019 was also among the top-traded wines this week. It has been the most traded Italian wine this year, and was given 100-points by The Wine Independent in September.
