Decanter Bordeaux Liv-ex Index
All prices are in GBP. Auctions taking place outside of the UK are converted at the spot exchange rate on the day of the sale.
The index is equal weighted, so every wine’s percentage movement has exactly the same effect on the index as every other. The index components were initially selected by the total value sold prior to the year ending August 2007.
To qualify for the index, wines have to have appeared at auctioned at least 12 times during the period. The index components are re-selected annually in August when the lowest 20 by auction sales are substituted for more active wines, with the same qualifying criteria applying.
The index is based at 100 in August 2007.
