Liv-ex Index falls in September

04 October, 2011

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 Index fell by 6.35% at the end of September compared to the month before and is down 4.05% for the year to date – but has grown 4.72% year-on-year.

The index said all its indices had ended the month on a down note, largely as a result of price falls for first growths.

The Liv-ex Claret Chip Index fell 8.03% in September, and by 6.69% for the year to date – although it was still up 3.15% year-on-year.

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 500 Index, the broadest based of all the Liv-ex indices, also fell by 2.23% last month. But it was up 11.38% for the year to date and 19.48% year-on-year.

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 Index shows the price movement of 100 of the most sought-after fine wines for which there is a strong secondary market and is calculated monthly. The index is mainly made up of Bordeaux wines – a reflection of the overall market – but also includes wines from Burgundy, the Rhône, Champagne and Italy.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
