Lafite 2014 top traded wine by value

Lafite’s 2014 vintage is the most traded wine by value on the Liv-ex Exchange so far this year – along with four more of its wines in a Bordeaux-dominated list.

Liv-ex has recently revealed the 10 most traded wines by value so far in 2017, eight of them being Bordeaux and largely first growths as well.

Lafite 2014 has taken a 2.3% chunk of trade by value in 2017, with the last trade recorded being £4,580 a case.

Montrose’s 2010 vintage meanwhile is the second most traded wine by value with 1.3% of trade and a last recorded price of £2,030 per dozen.

The other Lafite vintages among the highest traded (in descending order) were the 2010, 2009, 2011 and 2012. Cheval Blanc’s 2014 and Mouton Rothschild’s 2005 were also in the top 10 with trade shares of 0.69% and 0.68% respectively.

The only two non-Bordeaux wines in the top 10 were Laurent Ponsot’s 2014 Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes (£3,774/cs) which has seen a 1.07% share of trade and Sassicaia’s 2014 (£1,040/cs) with a 1.05% share.

Liv-ex pointed out too that the heavy trade in Montrose 2010 and Mouton 2005 was likely linked to their relatively recent alterations to their scores – up to 98 for Mouton and down to 99 for Montrose.

Earlier this week Liv-ex said that the best-performing claret label overall so far this year has been Gruaud Larose. Lafite also remains the most-searched for wine so far this year although there has been a significant rise in searches for Montrose and Figeac as well.
