The Burgundy 150 was once again the best-performing Liv-ex 1000 sub-index, rising 4.0% in March. Year-to-date, it is up 14.6%.

 

The Champagne 50 followed with a 2.6% increase. The index continues to lead the way over one year, with a 51.2% rise. The most traded wines by value and volume in March also came from the region – Louis Roederer Cristal 2014 and Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé.

Meanwhile, the Italy 100 index, which was one of February’s best-performers, slowed down as wines from Giacomo Conterno Barolo and Gaja Barbaresco declined in value.

 

What is the Liv-ex 1000 index?

 

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 1000 Index is the broadest measure of the market. It represents the price movement of 1000 of the most sought-after fine wines on the world’s most active and liquid marketplace. Stretching back over 20 years, the Liv-ex 1000 is comprised of seven sub-indices from across the world: the Bordeaux 500, the Bordeaux Legends 40, the Burgundy 150, the Champagne 50, the Rhone 100, the Italy 100 and the Rest of the World 60.

 

All Liv-ex indices are calculated using our Mid Price; the mid-point between the highest live bid and lowest live offer on the market. These are the firm commitments to buy and sell at that price; transactional data rather than list prices. It represents the actual trading activity of 600 of the world’s leading fine wine merchants. Because Liv-ex doesn’t itself trade, this data is truly independent and reliable.
