Liv-ex May Recap

June 01, 2015

May kept most of the industry's focus on the En Primeur campaigns, but trading continued on the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 and the Liv-ex Fine Wine 50. Both ran mostly flat for the month with the Fine Wine 100 drifting down 0.06% and the Fine Wine 50 gaining only 0.08%.

Lafite Rothschild 2003 and Haut Brion 2010 topped the table, gaining 6.6% and 5.4% respectively. Both are scored 100 points from Robert Parker. Margaux 2005 also performed well ahead of Parker’s retrospective of the vintage due at the end of June.
