Although the week seemed dominated by talk of the En Primeur campaign, Margaux was the only Bordeaux 2014 to trade on Liv-ex. Other 2014s have failed to spark demand on the secondary market. Please check the Liv-ex En Primeur pages for details on the latest releases, including prices relative to back vintages and critic scores.
Despite the lack of interest in the latest vintage, Bordeaux trade by value nonetheless remained above 80%. On the back of Robert Parker’s report on the Bordeaux 2012 in-bottle there was good activity for several 2012s, including Lafite and Angelus, which were among the week’s most traded wines.
With Parker’s ten-year retrospective due later this year, the Bordeaux 2005s continued to find buyers: Cos d’Estournel made both of the week’s top tables. At £1,370 per 12x75 it is also trading for 20% more than it was at the start of the year. Meanwhile, following a spate of activity in March, Sassicaia’s second wine San Guido Guidalberto returned to the top traded by volume table.
