In a region with so many big names, there are still plenty of potential future classics to add to your portfolio. We’re closely tracking the performance of these producers with high hopes for their future price appreciation.
One of the best-known Médoc producers, Château Lynch-Bages is a 5ème Cru Classe producer whose reds and whites have been firm favourites among aficionados and investors since the early 1970s.
Owned by Chanel since 1996, the St. Emilion property is known for its 1er Grand Cru Classé (B) wines with incredible potential for cellaring - and returns.
Château Brainaire-Ducru was classified as a fourth growth in 1855 and has built a reputation for producing classic St Julien since the current family purchased the estate in 1988. Highly regarded in Bordeaux, its bottles also hold high potential for returns.
When identifying investment opportunities from a region like Bordeaux, the most important factor to take into account is the perceived quality of a specific year’s vintage.
For famously good vintages, like the 2016 Bordeaux, we recommend looking into smaller, up-and-coming producers. The reason these Châteaux could offer improved returns is down to the simple fact that the global investor community already has confidence in the vintage. For a lesser vintage, such as the 2017 Bordeaux, you’re looking for good prices on the superstar Châteaux, for which there is always demand.
CultX gives investors access to a huge selection of Bordeaux wines, both classics and rising stars alike, making it simple to add some of the world’s most famous bottles to your portfolio.
