The start of January might also be known for post-festivity rest and recuperation, resolutions and short-lived gym memberships, but mostly the start of January marks Burgundy Week.
About this time, many of the top Burgundian wine producers release their crop of En Primeur wines. For the savvy investor, these sales present real opportunity to grab a bargain or attain a wine that is unlikely to ever hit shop shelves. There is the inherent risk too - perhaps the value will drop, perhaps the critics will be critical, or perhaps the finished wine will not live up to expectations.
At the other end of the market, risk is also in existence. Buying wines from auctions presents opportunity to attain wines well on their way to maturity and those rarely, if ever, found in retail. Unlike spirits however, wine continues to age in the bottle and will eventually fade - for some wines this could be 5 years, for others over 100 years. While naturally present, this risk can be mitigated through reviewing vintage reports and critic reviews - both of which are widely available - and imposing realistic expectations. The reward however, of a fine wine at its absolute peak of maturity, offering its full range of primary, secondary and tertiary flavours should be significant enough for most to negate the occasional disappointment.
So, if the risk-reward scales are deemed favourable, we have some incredible Burgundian wines (and others) available in our current auction. Happy browsing and please bid responsibly.
Consignments for February auction to be received by Friday 25th January. Thank you!
