Fine wine continues to outperform European and Asian equities

The financial markets have been a little calmer in November, compared to a very volatile October which saw an 8 per cent dive in the value of global equities, a loss of US$4.5 trillion off the MSCI World Index. November may have seemed calmer but there was still volatility in some sectors with the backdrop of continued economic and political uncertainty.

Liv-ex reported a quieter month too in the fine wine market in November with the Liv-ex 1000 rising to bring its cumulative 12 month position to 9% growth, compared to the FTSE 100’s 1%, S&P 500 4% and the DAX -17% decline. 

Burgundy’s Domaine Romanée Conti and Rousseau have been key to this sustained uplift and the more modest performance of the Bordeaux First Growths has resulted in a slight decline in November in the Liv-ex 50 and 100 indices.

Which wines grabbed the headlines?  Super Tuscan, Sassicaia 2015 was November’s top performing wine on Liv-ex, seeing 28% growth in price in the month, increased trading was stimulated by Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year award.
