Spring has sprung, and so has the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100: the industry benchmark rose 0.4% in March, its first positive movement in twelve months.  

While this rise may be a promising sign of stability, it wasn’t reflected in the rest of the market. The Liv-ex Fine Wine 50, which tracks the movements of the First Growths and is updated daily, fell 0.6% month-on-month. 

Likewise, the Liv-ex Fine Wine 1000, the broadest measure of the fine wine market, fell 0.6% in March. That said, this decline was much milder than the one it recorded in February (1.3%). Of its sub-indices, the Rhône 100 fared best, rising 0.4% month-on-month, while the Champagne 50 dipped 2.2%.  

Trade value and volume on the exchange took a slight dip in March, as did the number of individual wines (LWIN11s) traded.  

One quarter into 2024, the Liv-ex 1000 is down 3.5%, primarily driven by the Burgundy 150 which is down 5.5% year-to-date, the Rhône 100 down 4.8% and the Rest of the World 60, down 3.6%.
