Leoville Las Cases 2002 Trades at 17-Month High of $1,690

March 05, 2013

Two cases of Saint-Julien second growth Chateau Leoville Las Cases 2002 traded at 1,125 pounds ($1,690) each on the London-based Liv-ex wine market, the highest level for the vintage on the exchange in 17 months, according to data on Liv-ex’s Cellar Watch website.

The trade on March 2 was 18 percent up from a two-year low of 950 pounds it touched in mid-November, although below the $1,912 fetched by each of two cases at a Hart Davis Hart Wine Co. auction in Chicago in February last year, according to Cellar Watch data and Hart’s online archives.
