A case of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 2010, a first-growth Pauillac wine estate, sold for 6,225 pounds ($9,690) on London’s Liv-ex market yesterday, an eight-month low and 18 percent below its July 2011 peak, Liv-ex data showed.
The vintage fetched as much as 7,600 pounds a case on Liv- ex in 2011 as demand for Bordeaux wines was peaking and dropped below 5,800 pounds in August after investor appetite cooled. The 2010 vintage is the most expensive Mouton-Rothschild in merchant listings since its 2000 wine, according to data on Liv-ex’s Cellar Watch website.
