The 2008 vintage of Saint-Emilion wine producer Chateau Angelus climbed to a record high of 1,800 pounds ($2,730) a case on the London-based Liv-ex wine market this week, according to data on its Cellar Watch website.
The price was 15 percent up from a transaction last month and 61 percent above a trade conducted last August, according to Cellar Watch data. It was also higher than the HK$19,600 (1,570 pounds at the time) paid for each of two cases in a Sotheby’s (BID) sale in Hong Kong in October, according to Sotheby’s online auction data. Angelus was promoted to the ranks of one of the four top growers in the appellation in September.
