CULT WINES 2010 RECOMMENDATIONS

En Primeur Home | En Primeur Guide | Bordeaux 2011 Report | Critic Scores & Reviews | En Primeur Gallery



 
  Aarash Ghatineh (Analyst / Senior Portfolio Manager):

“Difficult to compare 2009 with 2010 both inherently distinct, 2010 a more ‘classic’ Bordeaux. Pricing as always should be interesting. Don’t be surprised if release prices for top estates are up on 2009 with bargains hard to get hold of. I expect Far Eastern demand for En Primeur 2010 to stretch across lesser growths. A more diverse market not just buying the top 5 chateaux. “

Favourite Wines: Margaux, VCC, Brane-Cantenac

Based on 2009 release prices, these are our investment recommendations

Potential short-term Investment Value:

Pontet Canet, Pavillon Rouge du Ch. Margaux, Montrose.

Margaux, Cheval Blanc, Mouton
     
     
  Tom Turner (Senior Portfolio Manager):

“Perhaps the Bordelais felt they needed another stonker to help justify the hugely inflated release prices for the extraordinary 2009 vintage. They probably realised that an inferior vintage would inevitably command lower release prices, potentially throwing the ’09 prices into temporary disrepute... Perhaps they were just fortunate enough to enjoy another fantastic growing season… For whatever reason, Bordeaux has produced another distinguished vintage that will live long in the memory – Bravo“

Favourite Wines: Pontet Canet, Margaux and VCC.

Based on 2009 release prices, these are our investment recommendations

  Thomas Gearing (Director):

“I’m sure the 2010 vintage will live long in the memory with many wines suited to decades of cellaring. It still remains to be seen whether it will take its place alongside the greats such as 2000, 1982, 1961, 1959 and 1945 – but there is every chance. A combination of high quality and smaller than usual production, suggests this vintage will again be oversubscribed. Assessment of the best wines to buy for investment will be reserved until prices are released, but expect last year plus 5-10% (due in part to currency fluctuations). On this basis a longer term strategy is advisable.“

Favourite Wines: Vieux Chateau Certan, Ch. Margaux and Cheval Blanc.

Based on 2009 release prices, these are our investment recommendations

Potential short-term Investment Value:

Pavillon Rouge, Lynch Bages and Montrose.

Potential long-term Investment Value:

  Philip Gearing (Director):

“Another great vintage for Bordeaux and following last year’s sensational offering we now have another magnificent range of wines to appreciate. I do think that subsequent tastings will hold the key to this vintage with regards to the style of wine that many will be offering and for me the right bank wines were less consistent.

Pricing and availability will determine where the value really is with 2010s, demand will focus on wines outside the firsts for those seeking investment value.“


Favourite Wines: VCC, Cos & Margaux. With special mention to Pape Clement (Blanc)

Based on 2009 release prices, these are our investment recommendations

Potential short-term Investment Value:

Ducru Beaucaillou & Pavillon Rouge

Potential long-term Investment Value:
Montrose, Lynch Bages & Lafite.
     
     
  Jonathan Stevenson (Portfolio Manager):

“All in all, an impelling vintage across the board. The quality of the season was evident and shone through in the efforts from all the first growth Chateaux. We now wait with bated breath, as Robert Parker’s scores should give final direction to price release. If early suggestions are anything to go by this year’s vintage will be walking out in the suit of 2009, only fitted to measure with a waistcoat and a top hat to match. Lots to look forward to, and pricing to be key in showing the true colours of the 2010 vintage. “

Favourite Wines: Cos d’Estournel and Margaux.

Based on 2009 release prices, these are our investment recommendations

Potential short-term Investment Value:

Carruades de Lafite and Pontet Canet.

Potential long-term Investment Value:
