The 2017 vintage of Saint Julien fourth-growth estate Chateau Beychevelle was the most-traded wine on the London-based online market Liv-ex in the past week, as tastings of that year’s wine hosted by the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux trade group continued in northern Europe.
Bordeaux producers showing the 2017 vintage met merchants at tastings in Amsterdam on Feb. 17 and Brussels on Feb. 18, and will be at the Prowein fair in Duesseldorf in March.
Beychevelle traded at 698 pounds ($903) per 12-bottle case in bond, up 7% from its May 2018 release price of 650 pounds, according to Liv-ex.
