Most powerful fine wine brands: nos. 10-1

In the final part of the most powerful fine wine brands of 2016 as based on the Liv-ex Power 100 list in association with the drinks business, we count down from entries 10 to one.

The first part of this list spanning 20-11 can be read here and the entire article which first appeared in the December issue of the drinks business can be read here.

Below is a quick summary of Liv-ex’s methodology for the list:

To calculate the scores, Liv-ex took a list of all wines that traded on Liv-ex in the last year (from 1 September 2015 to 31 August 2016) and grouped these by brand.

It then identified brands that had traded at least three wines or vintages, and had a total trade value of at least £10,000.

Brands were ranked using four criteria:

• year-on-year price performance (based on the market price for a case of wine on 1 September 2015 with its market price on 31 August 2016);
• trading performance on Liv-ex (by value and volume);
• number of wines and vintages traded;
• average price of the wines in a brand.

Over 4,000 different wines/vintages were traded.

These were grouped into 670 brands, of which 199 qualified for the final calculation.

The individual rankings were combined with a weighting of 1 for each criteria, except trading performance which had a weighting of 1.5 (as it combined two criteria).

The final 100 brands accounted for 2,046 unique wines that traded, and from the 199 brands that qualified, there were 2,804 wines.
