Since the 2011 crash, the fine wine market saw four years of decline however, since last summer there have been signs of recovery.

Considering the Angelus 2010, which has a current market price of £2,400 per 12×75, the 2010 vintage fell 7.7% behind the equally scored 2009 vintage – making it among the greatest differences between identically scored 2009 and 2010 vintages.

The 2010, which was upgraded to 98 points in February 2013 after a critic described it as “absolutely spectacular”, saw a decrease in price since its highest trade price at £2,400. However, since another boost in points to 99+ in August, the Angelus 2010 saw a steady increase to £2,300 at its last trade.

Angelus is increasing in popularity over the year, with Liv-ex logging it 7 places higher this year when rating the most popular wines on the platform.

Parker, who compared four of Angelus vintages in August 2015, stated;

“How much fun will it be to have the 2000, 2005, 2009 and 2010 in future tastings to see which vintage comes out on top? They are all candidates that will flirt with perfection, depending on the state of their evolution.”

The 2000 and 2005 Angelus vintages have been valued 38% higher than the 2009 and 50% higher than the 2010.
