Angelus 2005 Sells for Liv-ex Record of $4,300 After 15% Gain

February 12, 2013

Five cases of Chateau Angelus 2005 Saint-Emilion sold for 2,750 pounds ($4,300) each on the London- based Liv-ex market, a record for the exchange and up 15 percent from December, according to data on its Cellar Watch website.

Yesterday’s trade was 41 percent above a deal last August and came after the wine producer was promoted to the top status of Premier Grand Cru Classe A in the 2012 Saint-Emilion classification last year. The vintage traded as high as $4,674 at an Acker Merrall & Condit auction in New York in April 2011, at the height of demand for top Bordeaux wines.
