The blue-chip wine produced in Burgundy has appreciated in value by nearly 119% over the past five years. This corresponds with multiple factors – Burgundy has been hit by catastrophic meteorological events that have devastated yields. Furthermore, demand over the past ten years has skyrocketed. With such little wine produced, and the insatiable international demand for the best producers and bottlings, the return on these bottles has been unprecedented. Going forward, as demand only increases, appreciation will continue to outperform indices from throughout the wine and financial sectors.

Granted, entry pricing for these bottlings are already sky-high, but return will only exponentially increase.

Of course, just like any other investment, the best returns are seeking out younger Domaine, or Domaine with young winemakers. Not so long ago, Domaine Trapet and Cecile Tremblay were trading for pennies on the dollar. Today, their best bottlings are approaching, and in some cases exceeding four figures.

Even less heralded vintages, such as 2008, 2011 and 2017 are seeing exceptional returns.
