Two cases of Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2010, a second-growth Bordeaux red wine from Saint-Julien, sold for 965 pounds ($1,460) each on the London- based Liv-ex wine exchange yesterday, its lowest level for five weeks, according to Liv-ex data.
The vintage fetched as much as 1,016 pounds a case on March 7, its highest level since June 2011, before declining in trades over the past month. Leoville Poyferre is a neighboring estate to Chateau Leoville-Las-Cases and Chateau Leoville Barton, and the 2010 vintage is its third-most expensive of the past decade after the 2009 and 2003 wines.
