Yquem 1986 Retreats 6% From Last Year’s High to $3,710 on Liv-ex

March 07, 2013

A case of Chateau d’Yquem 1986 Sauternes traded at 2,466 pounds ($3,710) on the London-based Liv-ex wine market this week, 6 percent below last year’s high of 2,630 pounds reached 10 months ago, according to data on the exchange’s Cellar Watch website.

The wine, the highest-classified of the dessert wines from Bordeaux, fetched as much as $5,819 in April last year for a case sold at Sotheby’s (BID:US) in New York, according to the auction house’s online records. The vintage is among Yquem’s eight highest-priced of the past quarter-century, Liv-ex data shows.
