Dom Pérignon prices rebound in some back vintages 

Recent trading activity 

Bordeaux remains the leading region in terms of trade by value this week, buoyed by Château Mouton Rothschild 2019 and Château Lafite Rothschild 2018 trading.  

Burgundy currently holds the second spot, with Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2009 and Domaine Armand Rousseau, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, Clos Saint-Jacques 2020 among the wines traded since Monday. 

Dom Pérignon price decline slows 

In July, the Champagne 50 index showed relative stability, declining by only 0.2% compared to 1.2% in June. Over the same period, the Dom Pérignon index (see chart above) decreased by 1.2%, after falling 4.0% in June. 

All of the last ten vintages of Dom Pérignon have seen their Market Price fall year-to-date, apart from the 2010 which is up 2.5% since the start of the year. The 2008 vintage has declined the least, falling 0.2% year-to-date.

If we look at the price movements of these wines in July, the 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2013 vintages all remained stable. Could this be suggesting a potential slowdown in the Champagne decline?
