BORDEAUX HAS ONCE AGAIN TAKEN OVER THE TOP SPOTS ON THE "LIV-EX POWER 100" RANKING WITH ITS FIVE PREMIERS CRUS. NINE ITALIANS ON THE LIST: GAJA, MASSETO, SASSICAIA, GIACOMO CONTERNO, ORNELLAIA, TIGNANELLO, SOLAIA, BRUNO GIACOSA AND PETROLO

Bordeaux once again dominates the top positions on the ranking of the most valuable brands in the fine wines world, "Liv-ex Power 100", compiled annually by "Liv-ex" and "The Drinks Business". The ranking is calculated on critics’ scores, volumes traded on the market, values on the secondary market, average price.
The top five spots on the 2016 edition go to the Premiers Crus Château Lafite Rothschild, (last year at number 11), Château Mouton Rothschild (up from spot 3), Château Margaux (up from number 6), Château Haut Brion (from 2, the only Premier Cru down) and Château Latour. At position number 6, the absolute king of the auctions, the Burgundy label par excellence, Romanée-Conti.
Bordeaux’s newfound verve can be explained also by another fact. There are a total of 57 Bordeaux companies on the rankings of which 19 from Burgundy, 9 from Italy, 6 from Champagne and 9 from other regions in the wine world. The trend narrates the sector of the secondary market for fine wines, which constantly increases the number of companies and vintages. Liv-ex analyzed 670 brands in 2016, 265 more than in 2015, and 199 (19.8%) were analyzed for "Liv-ex Power 100".
Including, as mentioned, Italian wines, which put on a rather rocky performance. We have to go down to number 47 to find the first Italian, Gaja, (up 7 from 2015), followed by Masseto, at 51, (down one position) and Sassicaia, which closes the first three Italian wines at spot 55, (down 28 spots, while in 2015 it was the first Italian at 27).
The good news, however, is Giacomo Conterno’s position 59 (up from 119 in 2015), ahead of Ornellaia, at spot 73 (down from 62), while Tignanello is at number 84, down 39 positions. Solaia is at number 86, confirming last year’s results and one step ahead of another newcomer, also from the Langhe, Bruno Giacosa, at spot 87, while the last of the Italian Companies on "Liv-ex Power 100" is Petrolo, at position 91 (down from spot 87 in 2015).
