La publication de la dernière édition de Liv-ex Fine Wine Power 100, liste des meilleures marques des vins rares et prestigieux, triés selon leur pouvoir sur le marché.
Les grandes lignes de l'édition 2011:
- Lafite Rothschild continues to hold the reins, although demand for the First Growths is softening and the brand is loosening its grip on the market.
- Lower-ranking Crus Classes that represent value for money are among the most ambitious climbers this year. These include Seconds Growths such as Pichon Baron (+47 places), Leoville Poyferre (+23 places) and Pichon Lalande (+20 places).
- Broadening market interest has been a boon to Domaine Romanee Conti, which is developing a strong global following. Prices have soared in recent months. But due to its tiny production, DRC's share of total trade remains relatively modest.
