Burgundy’s share of trading by value on the London-based Liv-ex wine market rose to 25% in the week to Jan. 16 from 17% a week earlier as London tastings of the 2018 vintage hit their stride, according to Liv-ex’s Talking Trade report.

Italy’s share rose to 17% from 14% while Bordeaux’s correspondingly fell to 41% from 60%, it said.

Bordeaux wines from the 2012 vintage seeing active trade included Chateau Angelus, Chateau L’Evangile, Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte and Chateau Canon, Liv-ex said.
