Secondary market trends during En Primeur 2019

The month of June was dominated by the Bordeaux 2019 En Primeur campaign, with Liv-ex covering more than 100 major releases over the shortened four-week campaign. Despite the laser-like focus on the region, Bordeaux’s market share fell once again, to 44.7%. Within Bordeaux, the 2019 vintage was the most active by both value and volume. However, Lafite Rothschild 2010 was the most traded wine by value and Altesino Brunello Montalcino 2015 – by volume.

The Liv-ex 100 fell and the Liv-ex 1000 rose, building on its May gains. Within the Liv-ex 1000, the Champagne 50 was the biggest riser followed by the Bordeaux Legends 40 (1.42%) and Rhone 100 (0.81%). The Rest of the World 60 was the only sub-index to decline, down 0.90%.

The market continued its broadening – year-to-date the number of wines traded has risen 18.1%, while the number of active wines (those with either a LIVE bid or offer) is up 14.2%.

Next month, we will be updating the components of the Liv-ex 50 and the Bordeaux 500 index. This includes the addition of the 2017 vintage while discarding the 2007 vintage.
