Last week's Liv-ex market trading summary Small Lafite market was the most actively traded

Last week, as the industry has returned from Bordeaux, wine market activity increased and both value and volume of transactions rebounded, but Bordeaux's market share fell to 56.7 percent, plus the Petit Lafite market was the most active in last week's top five highest grossing wine rankings.

Two small châteaux were released this week: the 2017 vintage of Lanessan and Beaumont was released with a 5% reduction from the 2016 vintage; there are also rumors that a major Pauillac château in Pauillac will be released early next week.

Both U.S. and Italian wines traded well this week, driven by large volume deals for Brunello and Screaming Eagle. Other wine regions also saw an increase in trading this week, with wines from Australia, Argentina, China, South Africa, New Zealand and the UK all finding winning bids.

Antonio Galloni gave the wine 98 points for its charm and it sold for a final price of (1,275 per case) £22,800. The most actively traded brand, however, was Carruades Lafite Jr, with three vintages of this secondary wine making the list.
