The 2010 vintage of Chateau Angelus took the top place by value in Liv-ex trading over the past week, reaching 2,875 pounds per 12-bottle case, fractionally below the record high of 2,900 pounds it reached last month, according to Liv-ex's Talking Trade blog. Krug Vintage Brut 2000 took second place, trading at 1,552 pounds a case, while Pontet Canet's 2005 vintage at 950 pounds a case came in third spot.

Overall Bordeaux's share of Liv-ex trade fell to 70.3 percent in the week to Oct. 20 from 79.3 percent a week earlier, reflecting both an increase in the value and volume of overall wine market trade and a surge in Champagne activity, which saw that region's share rise to 14.7 percent from 3.3 percent, according to Liv-ex.

Italy accounted for 4.6 percent of total trade, up from 3.0 percent, while Burgundy's share slipped to 4.3 percent from 9.0 percent and the Rhone edged up to 1.4 percent from 1.0 percent, according to Liv-ex.
