Relative five week performance

Are the dramatic price increases we have seen for Lafite Rothschild throughout 2009 (with most vintages up 40% year to date) now starting to ease?

Above is a graph of the weekly performance of the First Growths since the beginning of October, as measured by the Liv-ex Claret Chip Index. Over the five week period it has been Mouton Rothschild that has been the top performer, recording a price increase of 5.3%. Lafite places third, just behind Latour. Evidence that the market is starting to find a broader base?
