Particularly high values were recorded for Ornellaia with +17%, followed by Masseto with +13%, both of them have performed above average. The consumer's appreciation confirms the opinion of America's wine critics. The recently introduced Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC Superiore vintage 2009 received a rating of 97 out of 100 points as the best from the Bolgheri zone. Antonio Galloni comments: "in one of my blind tastings, the 2009 made a very eloquent case for itself as the wine of the vintage”.
LIV-EX-INDEX: London International Vintage Exchange - short LIV-EX - is an online platform exclusively for high-quality wines, so-called “Fine Wines”. This index was founded in 1999 by former stock brokers James Miles and Justin Gibbs. LIV-EX includes 100 top French wines that were selected by a certain criteria: a wine listed in the LIV-EX index needs to have a rating of at least 95 points from the leading wine critic Robert Parker. Ninety percent of the 100 top wines are Bordeaux wines. The remaining 10 percent are split up in Burgundy, Champagne, Rhone and also some Italian wines. (red.yoopress)
