Bordeaux First Growths continue to dominate trading activity

This past week has seen concentrated trading activity in Bordeaux First Growths with Mouton Rothschild accounting for just over 50% of trades matched by value. Whilst a variety of vintages of First Growths have traded, Mouton Rothschild was in high demand from bidders albeit at slightly softened prices.

Overall positions increased by a slim 1% up to £3.83 million, yet there has been a noticeable increase in traction of trading activity with bid and offer notifications flying around as members juggle their positions. New positions placed over the last seven days have amounted to £340,000 spread across 122 differing wines and, as always, it’s not just the high value cases being sought or sold. With offers such as a six case parcel of Marquis de Terme 2009 at £260 per dozen (which is the greatest wine Robert Parker has tasted from the estate) all the way through to a Classic 2001 DRC assortment case at £18,500 per 12, there are wines at all levels to be traded.

As previously mentioned, notable trades of the week saw Mouton Rothschild trade in multiple vintages with the 96 at £3,060 (-1.29% since May), 98 at £3,000 (-6.2% since Oct), 2000 at £10,200, 2005 at £3,400 (-5.6% since April), 2007 at £2,550 (-7.4% since April) and the 2008 at £2,270 trading flat through June.

Montrose 2005 had the biggest fall with a drop of 9.1% since September last year. The Cavex ticker has happily seen some green this week with Pontet Canet 2008 trading up 3.6% at £580 per dozen since April. Lynch Bages 2010 likewise saw a slight climb of 2.9% to £875.
