Following enthusiastic trading in January it was no surprise to witness a slight fall in trade in early February as we reached cut off for UK exports. As focus changes in Asia from stocking up, to selling through all new purchases, the Cavex exchange saw a dip of 1.7% in total value and a smaller dip of 1% in overall positions. Total value of exchange positions remains above the £6million mark with the bid to offer ratio now at 2.26:1.
Bordeaux took the lion’s share of trade throughout the week with increased activity in the 2005 vintage. Strong bids have been placed for a multitude of Chateaux with most notable trades seeing significant increases for Calon Segur 2005 up 20% from October to £600 per 12, Latour 2005 up 7% from August trading at £6,150 per 12 and Pontet Canet 2005 trading at £930 up 9.4% since November. Cheval Blanc 2007 was the only wine outside of 2005 that posted a double digit rise trading at £2,780 up 13.9% since November last year.
Whilst Mouton Rothschild has been the “in-demand” wine recently, it was interesting to see the 2006 take a small dip of 2.6% since early January. Bid values appear to be increasing across all vintages, but will the rally continue throughout the year of the Ram?
For this week’s Hot Stock offers we’re focusing on some great Burgundies that we feel have been overlooked in recent weeks as the Asia/Bordeaux machine has been at full throttle. With such great wines on offer from Domaines’ such as Cathiard, Drouhin, Ponsot and Prieur it’s really worth taking a look at what is available. Hot Bids remain firmly centered in Bordeaux, with the 2005’s most prominent, however with strong bids still up for big names post Chinese New Year demand there remains plenty of selling opportunities. The full list of live bids can be downloaded below and it’s always worth taking a look.
