This morning we reported that many of Parker's "perfect" wines were trading on Liv-ex at premium prices. The torrent of 2009 trade continued into the afternoon, with numerous wines reaching record highs. Among those on the up was Haut Brion 2009. After falling to a low of £6,200 per case in February, the vintage changed hands at £7,500 today - its highest level since June 2011. The most exceptional transaction of the day, however, was Smith Haut Lafitte '09. As you can see, the wine's value has more than doubled to £1,400.
