In June, the 2019 Bordeaux vintage En Primeur was in the market spotlight; Liv-ex covered and analyzed more than 100 major wine releases in a concentrated four-week campaign. Despite the high level of interest in Bordeaux, the wine region"s market share fell again to just 44.7%. In the case of Bordeaux, 2019 is the same vintage with the highest total value and volume of transactions. However, the wines with the highest total value and total volume of all wines traded were Lafite Rothschild 2010 and Altesino Brunello Montalcino 2015, respectively.
After rising since May, the Liv-ex 100 and Liv-ex 1000 saw the former fall and the latter rise in June. Among the Liv-ex 1000 sub-indices, Champagne 50 rose the most, followed by Bordeaux Legend 40 (1.42%) and Rhône 100 (0.81%). The Rest of the World 60 was the only sub-index to fall (-0.90%).
The market continues to expand this month, with the number of wines showing up for trade so far having risen by 18.1% and the number of active wines (with live offers or bids) up by 14.2%.
Next month, we will update the component wines in the Liv-ex 50 and Bordeaux 500 indices; this will include the addition of the 2017 vintage and the removal of the 2007 vintage.
