Champagne wines

“Champagne has outperformed both Gold and the FTSE 100 in recent times, and there’s no sign of demand slowing down. Christie’s wine and spirits auction saw a single bottle of Perrier-Jouët ‘Brut Millesimé’ sell for $56,769.”

– Tom Turner, Cult Wines Operations Director

Rising stars in Champagne

Investors have long been attracted to the well-known brands of Champagne like Dom Perignon, Taittinger, or Bollinger, but a strong contingent of smaller artisanal “Grower Champagnes” have caught the attention of investors.

These are our picks for the “Grower Champagne” producers to watch:

How to add Champagne to your wine portfolio

Champagne is synonymous with quality, and the best-known brands can often provide reliable returns. Large format bottles, like magnums or jeroboams, tend to be seen as more collectable, as do special editions. C

reated in collaboration with artists or other creative luminaries to commemorate exceptional vintages or historic events, special edition bottles are often especially likely to appreciate - for both the craft of the bottle and the quality of the Champagne it contains.

But investing in Champagne is far more than brand recognition and opulent objets d’art - there are plenty of producers of Grower Champagne that could be the ones to watch. Grower Champagne is more terroir-focused, made only with the grapes from a producer’s own vineyard rather than sourced from multiple sites. The result is unique vintages - that have delivered strong returns in recent years.

With CultX, you can choose from iconic brands and up-and-coming Grower Champagnes and add the exact bottles you’d like to your portfolio.

“After setting a blistering pace in the second half of 2021, prices for several top vintage Champagnes have broadly continued rising this year. ‘Demand is through the roof,’ observed Matthew O’Connell, head of investment at Bordeaux Index and CEO of the UK-based merchant’s LiveTrade platform.”
