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. 


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...

While these i...

Learning Lessons

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 has pushed on once more beyond the September monthly close [Fig 1] and now currently stands at 330, indicating that trading in Bordeaux First Growth remains strong as we progress through the final quarter of 2016. 

Here and in other reports, there has been much commentary relating to the currency influence on the fine wine market.  It should be stressed that this is n...

A Changing Market

The Liv-ex 50 reported another strong week now standing at 327.68 ahead of the September monthly close  [Fig 1].  Clearly the weaker Sterling is continuing to exert an influence and Bordeaux seems to be a major beneficiary. Indeed, there seems to be a lot of good news surrounding Bordeaux currently with early indications suggesting a positive 2016 harvest is underway in terms of both quality and quantity...
