Decanter - - FINE WINE PRICE WATCH -

In­dex level at end of Au­gust 2016

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 In­dex rep­re­sents the price move­ment of 100 of the most sought-af­ter fine wines for which there is a strong se­condary mar­ket and is cal­cu­lated monthly. The ma­jor­ity of the in­dex con­sists of Bordeaux wines – a re­flec­tion of the over­all mar­ket – al­though wines from Bur­gundy, the Rhône, Cham­pagne and Italy are also in­cluded. The in­dex is cal­cu­lated using Liv- ex Mid Prices and is then weighted to ac­count for orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion lev­els and in­creas­ing scarcity as the wine ages. As such, the in­dex is de­signed to give each wine a weight­ing that cor­re­sponds with its im­pact on the over­all mar­ket. The Liv- ex 100 In­dex was re­based at 100 in Jan­uary 2004.
