Champagne is an icon not just of fine wine but also fashion and luxury markets, all of which experienced rising prices in 2021 according to The Knight Frank Wealth Report 2022. This has carried over to 2022 as demand outstrips supply, which has been impacted by lower-than-average production levels in Champagne over the past few years.
A year ago, a bottle of Cedric Bouchard, Roses de Jeanne Cote de Val Vilaine, a Champagne which typically scores 93 to 94+ points on Wine Advocate, would have cost you £829 (Nov 2021). Today, it has jumped in value 149% and will likely set you back £2,060.
Cedric Bouchard is a great example of a small boutique producer making top-quality, rare Champagne. But the impressive price increases over the past year can also be seen in some more common - but just as delightful – Champagnes. On CultX you can track the performance of these Champagnes alongside many other wines to scout out the best opportunities in fine wine.
