Does The Price Increase Continue At The Beginning Of The Year?

After a crazy year in 2021, the price increase in early 2022 continues, whatever the region and vintage. In fact, despite the terrible events that are taking place between Ukraine and Russia, the wine market behaves as if nothing had happened, and even presents very promising opportunities for investors. The appearance of various market niches and the notable rise in prices make 2022 one of the best years to start investing.

In fact, the WD Bordeaux 100, the largest market index available on Bordeaux wines (100 wines, more than 14 vintages, ~1.9 billion euros) is up 3.4% in 2022. In addition, all the previous records, regardless of the vintage. The situation is identical in all regions, and prices are at unprecedented levels

Here are some graphs and statistics to help you in your investments.

* 100: Château Latour and Les Forts de Latour are not included in the vintage indices.

** RPC: annualized progression compared to the starting prices of the RPC

*** Bordeaux Index 2003-2018: the index is calculated from the average of the values ​​of each vintage weighted by the stock


The “market” indices aim to measure the evolution of the value of the last 14 vintages.

They measure the evolution of the average values ​​and, therefore, the medium-term trend of the most recent and available vintages.

The “price” indices (WD Bordeaux in a given vintage) measure the evolution of prices and are calculated on a constant basis over time.

The WD Bordeaux 90 market index corresponds to the global annual value in millions of euros of the last 14 vintages (excluding primeurs) of the 90 largest Bordeaux wines, excluding early growths.

The WD Bordeaux 1CC market index corresponds to the global annual value in millions of euros of the last 14 vintages (excluding primeurs) of the top 10 classified or assimilated Bordeaux growths (Angélus, Ausone, Cheval Blanc, Haut-Brion, Lafite- Rothschild, Latour, Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild, Pavie, Pétrus)

The WD Bordeaux 100 market index corresponds to the sum of the WD Bordeaux 90 and WD Bordeaux 1CC indices, that is, the 100 greatest Bordeaux growths over 14 vintages, that is, a total of 1,400 wines.

These indices are calculated from the market price, constantly over time, and take into account annual stocks and production volumes.
