40 best UK priced Burgundies and older vintage First Growths

Growth returned on the Cavex platform this week with renewed interest in bidding activity from buyers around the globe seeing an increase of 3% in total bid value. Encouraged by more stellar bidding activity, sellers have been equally active. Total value of all positions grew by 3.05% back up to £3.9million.

Sellers have added a range of Burgundy and older vintage First Growths amounting to £150,000 of new stock up for offer. Though there are many keenly priced wines available, we’re focusing on 40 Burgundies that are best priced in the UK by a good margin.  With sellers still willing to strike deals with bidders, don’t miss out on this week’s highlights such as Domaine Trapet Chambertin 04 and 07, Ponsot and Rousseau Clos de la Roche 07′s, as well as a gem from Ghislaine Barthod with her 2005 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras.

For those who have seen the recent observations from wine trade commentators that older vintage First Growths are reaching a good buying level, there are some very well priced wines from the 86, 96 and 1998 vintages. Haut Brion 1996 at £2,610 per dozen is surely the best offer this week. There is also a three case parcel of the 99 point 1996 Margaux at £4,060 per 12, certainly worth considering as this vintage becomes less readily available over time.

Notable trades from the last seven days, the last trio of Clos des Papes 2004 cases trading at £320 per dozen following Cavex’s previous update. A great parcel of all three Leoville’s trading from the 2003 vintage and a large parcel of Ornellaia 09 exchanging at £590 per six.

However, whilst there was widespread trading of wines from regions outside of Bordeaux and they continue to hold their prices, the prices of more recent and stellar Bordeaux vintages of classified growths soften further. Lafite 2000 experienced the biggest drop of the week trading down 8.8% since October 2013 at £11,400. Lafite’s fall from grace continued with further decline for the 2008 to £4,930 (-2% from April 2014) and the 2009 at £6,450 (-3.7% from April 2014). Falls were not just limited to First Growths with a notable drop for Montrose 2000 down 7% to £1,070 since August last year.

Bordeaux prices are still drifting but there are always plenty of decent buying opportunities to be found at all levels from other regions of the world. Take a look at the attached stock lists which detail all current live positions for bid and offer. With over 1400 different markets there is certainly plenty to choose from.
