Mouton most popular wine on Liv-ex

Château Mouton Rothschild has overtaken fellow first growth Lafite as the most searched for wine on Liv-ex.

Mouton has not become the most popular wine by volume or value trade but rather by page clicks between January and July of this year, a rating Liv-ex compiles every year.

Nonetheless, an increasing number of searches for Mouton ties in quite nicely with recent trends showing that it is the best-performing first growth year-on-year and that Lafite’s premium versus its fellow firsts is continuing to decline.

Haut-Brion, likewise, leap-frogged Latour in third and fourth places while Margaux held steady in fifth place.

Cheval Blanc climbed rapidly from tenth place in 2014 to sixth in 2015.

Although the first growths still occupied the top five places, they’re second wines have fallen in popularity with Carruades de Lafite dropping nine places from 11th to 19th.

The rising popularity of non-Bordeaux teams was also evident. Six wines were forced out of the top 50 this year, five of them from Bordeaux, while Ornellaia, Screaming Eagle and Vega Sicilia’s “Unico” all entered the list for the first time, while Sassicaia rose from 28th to 24th place.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti declined from ninth to 14th place.

Some Bordeaux wines did climb though – notably Pape Clement which has received a number of high scores from Robert Parker for recent vintages. Having not made the list in 2011, it is now number 23 on the list.
