“Petrus. Lafite Rothschild. Margaux. With blue chip producers like these, Bordeaux plays heavily in any serious fine wine portfolio.”
Stability, liquidity, and high potential for returns: Bordeaux investment wines attract a global audience of investors, both beginners and experts alike. Holding 40% of the global fine wine market (the largest share of any region), Bordeaux consistently performs well overall.
Historically, Bordeaux wine prices have proven resilient to broader macroeconomic trends that can have negative effects on traditional asset classes.
Holding Bordeaux is an essential choice for investors looking to build a balanced fine wine portfolio.
The Liv-ex Bordeaux 500 represents the price movement of 500 leading wines from the region and is recognised as an accurate measure of the region’s performance.

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 product.
For famously good vintages, like the 2016 Bordeaux, we recommend looking into smaller, up-and-coming producers. The reason these chateaux 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 chateaux, 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.
