For wine amateurs, Bordeaux remains Number one

Various recent studies show that when it comes to wine , the amateurs’ most trusted and preferred region is and remains Bordeaux and its Grands Crus Classés.

 It might not come as a surprise, but the facts show that when we talk  about wine, Bordeaux springs almost immediately to most  amateurs mind. This is mostly due to the fact that the 1855 Bordeaux  Grands Crus Classés as well as the Saint-Emilion classification benefit  from a worldwide notoriety due to the regularity in quality of those  wines as well as to the prestigious history of those monuments of the  wine history.

The Bordeaux Grands Crus Classés reputation is that high that they  account for 90 % of the total wine investments in the world. And, if we  consider that only 0.1 % of the wines produced in the world are  considered as “investment wines” we see what a prowess the Bordeaux  Grands Crus Classés achieved.


This data show that Bordeaux wines are well in demand and, when it comes to buying wines for pleasure or investment, the potential investor should commit with an intermediary that is strongly implanted in the Bordeaux area and has built long term relationship with the Grands Crus Classés. That’s, according to us, the only way to get access to those prestigious wines.
