Burgundy wines

“Burgundy in 2020 is what winemakers, wine lovers and wine investors will remember as one of the best vintages ever… ”

– Andrea Marino, Cult Wines Senior Fine Wine Buyer

Is Burgundy a good investment in 2022?

With low supply and higher demand than ever, Burgundy has never been hotter - and the rally isn’t showing any signs of stopping just yet. Burgundy holds the second-largest share of the global wine market with around 20%, and bottles from the region’s most renowned producers regularly top the lists of the world’s most expensive wines. With historically strong returns and world renown, Burgundy is an essential addition to any wine portfolio.

Rising stars in Burgundy

For such a geographically small region, there are a huge number of producers. With small yields and high demand, there are plenty of more speculative opportunities for investors to choose from.

These are the up and coming chateaux we’re watching closely right now.

How to add Burgundy to your wine portfolio

When you’re looking at investing in Burgundy, two of the most important factors to consider are brand and vintage.

Burgundy is home to many renowned superbrands, which can provide reliable returns; at the same time, there are up-and-coming and smaller negociants crafting exceptional products for significantly lower initial investments - and higher potential for appreciation.

In a balanced Burgundy portfolio, you’ll want to have bottles from both the established chateaux and well-regarded newcomers for the best chances of maximising your returns.

In terms of vintage, recent years have been regarded as particularly good for Burgundy. If you can secure a bottle from one of the superbrands, such as Romanee-Conti or Domaine Leroy, from a banner year like 2015, it’ll be incredible - these renowned producers are focused on using traditional techniques to bring out the best in their grapes and craft extremely limited quantities of wine that are nearly impossible for investors to secure.

At the same time, investors shouldn’t overlook the lesser-known producers - in good years, there’s already confidence in the vintage, so it’s worth looking beyond the best-known brands for new opportunities.

And even seemingly lesser vintages can present interesting opportunities for Burgundy investors. You could be able to pick up a bottle from a superbrand for a steal - and with consistent demand for these brands, it may provide attractive returns.

With CultX, you can enjoy access to Burgundy from iconic chateaux and up-and-coming producers alike. Choose the exact bottles you’d like to add to your portfolio, and track their performance directly from our app.

“Global demand for top Burgundy wines has continued to be strong, with wealthy collectors buying to drink as well as to invest, say merchants… White wines were particularly in demand as savvy buyers anticipated shortages in the 2021 vintage, due to adverse weather conditions.”
