Liv Ex recalculates Bordeaux based on the 1855 method

Fine wine exchange Liv-ex has recalculated the 1855 Bordeaux Classification with its price-based ranking of the Bordeaux classed growths. The last recalculation was in 2011.

Not too much has changed at the top of the list. Chateau Latour and Chateau Lafite still take the top two spots, but Latour is now first and Lafite is in second place, with an average case price of £7,060 and £6,760 respectively.

Chateau Margaux (£4,777), Mouton Rothschild (£4,465) and Haut Brion (£4.370) retain their third, fourth and fifth places. La Mission Haut Brion holds its 2011 position of a first growth, in sixth place.

Chateau Palmer (average price £1,787) remains at the top of the second growth table while Pontet Canet jumps from its 1855 rank of fifth growth to second growth, with an average case price of £987.
