Carruades de Lafite 2008 Advances to Four-Month High on Liv-ex

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Two cases of Carruades de Lafite 2008, the second wine of Bordeaux first-growth Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, sold for a four-month high of 1,750 pounds ($2,620) on the London-based Liv-ex wine market yesterday, according to data on its Cellar Watch website.

The price was 8 percent up from a 31-month low reached last October, and came after 12 cases were sold at an Acker Merrall & Condit auction in New York last month, six for $2,952 each and six for $2,706, according to Acker’s online records.
