Chinese New Year: The most popular ‘rabbit’ wines in Asia

With the new lunar year we are entering the era of the Water Rabbit. According to the Chinese Zodiac, luck and prosperity are said to accompany us regardless of the animal sign we share.

In light of the new lunar year, today we look at the most traded wines from the last rabbit vintage (2011) among Liv-ex members in Asia.

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2011 has been the most traded wine among Liv-ex members in Asia (by both value and volume).

Its current Market Price of £1,180 per 12×75 represents an 10.3% increase on its release price (£1,070 per 12×75). The wine is also up 10.3% in the past year.

Two Burgundy wines were among the top 10, with Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti Grand Cru 2011 in second place. The wine has risen 5.3% in the past year.

In third place was Domaine Leroy Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Aux Vignerondes 2011. Of the wines listed, Domaine Leroy has seen the biggest price increase over the past year, up 25%.

Our latest extended report on Burgundy 2021’s vintage considers the region’s current secondary market in more depth and unpicks issues around price inflation (Liv-ex members only).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the majority of the top-traded 2011 wines were from Bordeaux. Three of the First Growths featured on the list (Lafite Rothschild, Haut-Brion and Mouton Rothschild), as did several leading estates from the Right Bank (L’Evangile, Petrus and Ausone).
