Market Updates

We are pleased to introduce our new Weekly Market Update.  Rather than focus on our larger, more in-depth market reports, we have decided to concentrate on bringing you more timely commentary on a more regular basis via these refreshingly short, one page documents. As ever, you can respond to this email or call any member of the Atlas Team with questions or comments. 


More Runners and Riders

January has continued to be a brisk trading month and so far it appears that the Liv-ex Indices are continuing in a similar vein to last year. The Fine Wine 50, for example, now stands at 336.93 ahead of its December close. With steady trade in Bordeaux and plenty of activity surrounding Burgundy 2015 as well as various back vintages, all signs for 2017 seem positive. Today’s picture is markedly different to...

The Underpinning Value of Rarity and Demand

We enter the New Year with the fine wine market in far better shape that most observers would have expected at the beginning of 2016. While some uncertainty remains, revisiting the predictions of the Liv-ex membership makes for interesting reading. In March 2016, Liv-ex published their results of an annual merchant survey in which members are asked to predict the closing level of the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100. Even tho...

Differences in Perspective

The Liv-ex 50 (the Index of the 10 most recently released vintages of the five Bordeaux First Growths) continues its upward trajectory despite a slight bounce in Sterling’s fortunes as judged against the Dollar or Euro. The opportunity to either Dollar or Euro-based buyers remains. This is highlighted most clearly by Fig 2.—a chart published by Liv-ex last week showing a percentage of value growth for ...

A Window of Burgundian Opportunity?

As the trade prepares to build marketing campaigns on Burgundy 2015, it provides an
opportune moment to consider how Burgundy stands as a category today. The Liv-ex Burgundy 150 (an index of the ten most recently shipped vintages of 15 red and 15 white Burgundy) stands at 353.11 having moved 19.75% year-to-date [Fig 2], yet perhaps this does not tell the whole story; Burgundy is difficult to track in terms o...
