The Burgundy 150 declined 2.2% in July and has fallen 10.3% year-to-date.  

Amid the current downturn, however, the market is still active with more individual wines (LWIN11s) trading in July than in June. 

Year-to-date, the most traded producers from Burgundy include Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Leroy and Armand Rousseau. The list of the most traded LWIN 11s by number of trades, contains wines ranging from £460 to £3,900 per case, as shown in the table below. 

Looking at the most-traded wines by volume, three 2020 wines feature at the top, with prices for the top five ranging from £240 to £5,346 per 12×75. 

Among the biggest fallers in the Burgundy 150, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Richebourg Grand Cru 2016 saw the largest decline in July (-24.7%), followed by Joseph Drouhin, Montrachet Grand Cru, Marquis de Laguiche, 2015 which was down 19.5%.  

By contrast, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Conti Grand Cru, 2017 was up 11.9% last month, followed by Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Richebourg Grand Cru, 2019 up 11.4%.  

The downward price movements over the last few months created opportunities for buyers looking to secure wines at a lower price. However, recent resurgence in price shows resilience from some major Burgundian brands, and hint that the downturn won’t last forever.
