The Bordeaux wine market confirmed its recovery in 2016 after five years of declines that cut prices of the region’s leading wines by more than 40% from their 2011 peak, according to a review from the London-based Liv-ex exchange.
The "Liv-ex Fine Wine 50," comprised of 10 recent vintages of Bordeaux first-growth wines including Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Chateau Latour, climbed about 26% for the year, and was heading for its 13th straight monthly gain in December, according to Liv-ex data.
Even with that rebound ... the index remained some 25% below the peak reached ... from 2008 to 2011, according to Liv-ex.
