Positioning for the Recovery: Catching Champagne’s ‘Fallen Angels’
This is the first in a new series on how to profit from the potential recovery in fine wine prices.
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012 - Round Trip Back to Release Price Creates Asymmetric Opportunity
The article highlights the investment potential of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012, noting its "Extraordinary" rating and its price retracement to the initial release price, presenting a favorable opportunity for a market recovery. It also mentions upcoming catalysts, like rising consumption and the release of the 2013 vintage, which will likely drive the 2012 vintage's value higher.
Fine Wine Price Correction: What is going on? And How you Profit from It?
Fine Wine has seen a modest pull-back in prices over the past few months. Although the wider market is down only 6.0% from its highs, some high-profile names have dipped a lot more. What is going on? And is this a buying opportunity? If so, what are the most attractive wines?
Lafite Rothschild 2019 – Recent Pullback is Great Buying Opportunity
Lafite Rothschild 2019 is the most attractive vintage on the market right now in terms of quality and price. It has performed fantastically well since release. The recent -12.6% price correction represents a surprising, but welcome, buying opportunity.
How to Use Lower Trading Volumes to Build Great Positions
The rise in global interest rates has led to lower liquidity and wider price variations in the fine wine market, creating an opportunity for savvy investors to strategically place realistic bids and build great positions. Historical patterns and macroeconomic factors suggest that the current lower volume trading is likely to be temporary, making the current bids potentially valuable investments in the future.
Opus One 2019 – Cult Napa with Global Appeal
Opus One 2019 offers a significant discount compared to other top estates and has the potential to be the best Opus One ever with a rating of 97-99 points. Its global appeal is boosted by the prestigious 'La Place de Bordeaux' distribution network, and the absence of the 2020 vintage due to wildfires is only expected to increase demand for the 2019 vintage.
Cos d’Estournel 2017 - Prepare for the 2017 Vintage Re-Appraisal (July 2023 Update)
Find out why we have identified Cos d'Estournel 2017 as a standout investment from this often overlooked vintage.
