March saw the Liv-ex First Growth index close up a whopping 3%, the largest monthly gain since February 2011. It has been 4 months in a row now that the major index (led by Bordeaux) realised postive gains.
Also the En Primeur campaign for the new 2015 vintage kicked off last week. The world’s leading critics and fine wine professionals were invited to Bordeaux to taste the latest vintage. Expectations were high as 2015 is said to be a magnificent vintage. Cru Wine Investment was on the field to check the quality first hand. In our opinion the 2015 vintage is of great quality, but not as homogeneous as 2010 when almost all the châteaux produced top quality wines. The northern appellations as Pauillac and Saint Estephe suffered from the rain during harvest, resulting in inferior quality for some estates. On the other hand, the more southern appellations (Margaux and Pessac Léognan) and the right bank (Pomerol and Saint Emilion) produced magnificent wines. A few of our favourites are: Château Margaux, Pavillon Rouge, Château Palmer, Vieux Château Certan, Château Canon and Château Haut Brion.
We will keep a close eye on these wines and their upcoming release prices.
