The 2013 and 2014 vintages of Chateau Lafite Rothschild were among the most-traded wines on the London-based Liv-ex online wine market in the week to Dec. 21, the run-up to the Christmas weekend, according to Liv-ex's Talking Trade blog.
The 2009 vintage of its second wine Carruades de Lafite also featured in the top five, according to Liv-ex, while other heavily traded wines included Petrus 2006 and Chateau Pontet Canet 2012.
In the thinner pre-Christmas trading, Bordeaux's market share rebounded to 73 percent, its highest for two months, driven mainly by right-bank wines including Petrus and Le Pin, according to Liv-ex.
