The steady performance of rosé Champagne
Over the last year, the rosé Champagne index* (+7.1%) has risen almost as much as the Champagne 50 index (+7.6%) but its performance has been more stable.
As explored yesterday, the Champagne 50 has had a tumultuous few months, characterised by sharp increases and declines. In February, it was the worst-performing Liv-ex 1000 sub-index for the third month in a row.
Meanwhile, rosé Champagne has seen neither the heights nor the falls of the Champagne 50. The index had a strong first half of 2022, rising 7.1%. Its first dip of 1.8% was in July, but it then rose 3.4% between August and October.
However, like the Champagne 50, prices for pink bubbles also fell over the last three months, down 3.2%.
*The rosé Champagne index is a custom-made Liv-ex index comprised Bollinger La Grande Année Rosé, Louis Roderer Cristal Rosé, Dom Pérignon Rosé, Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé, Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame Rosé and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé.
The best-performing rosé Champagne over the last year has been Bollinger La Grande Annee Rosé, up 17.8%. It has been followed by Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé, which has risen 16.1%.
No rosé Champagne index has fallen in value over a one year period but Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé has seen the smallest increase of 1.0%.
Meanwhile, trade by value of rosé Champagne has risen 17.5% over the course of the year.
