Wine Investment Performance Since 2000  - 23rd November 2009

Up until a few years ago the Fine Wine market was a virtual unknown to most investors except those collectors who used wines’ increasing value to fund further purchases. In the last 10 years those who had previously put their money into stocks, bonds, gold and oil have turned to wine. In the period of ‘31 December 1999 and 31 October 2009 there was a 138% return’ on the Fine Wine Investables index and this has lead journalists to label Fine Wine as ‘the best investment of the decade’.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1982 has been the best performer over the last decade returning 876%, and experts predict the Chateau along with Mouton Rothschild and Latour to ‘(lead) the pack over the next year or so’ as the most profitable wines to invest in.

With the 2008 vintages of Lafite and Mouton scoring 98-100 pts and 96 pts respectively on the Robert Parker scale, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that these wines will indeed return the greatest yields for investors. Especially considering that the 96 point scoring Lafite 2005 is trading at well over £8000 and the similarly scored Mouton 2005 is trading at over £5000, investors should jump at the chance to get hold of the 2008 vintages for around £5000 and £3000 respectively.

The recent explosion in prices has been put down to ‘new-money buyers from China and the rest of Asia’ and it is believed that this will soon spread to all of China’s major cities ‘putting enormous supply pressure on certain Bordeaux chateaux’.
