Investing in Burgundy: search on for next stars

With a lot of buzz around Burgundy of late, prices appear to be defying the doubters, though demand may outstrip supply for the biggest names.

Prices for top-tier Burgundy wines have been rising again in 2021, apparently defying earlier suggestions that they might have peaked. More demand from wealthy buyers and a finite supply of bottles have combined to drive ‘a significant uptick in prices’ for Burgundy’s superstar wines, said Matthew O’Connell, head of investment at merchant Bordeaux Index.

Talk of blue-chip Burgundy hitting a peak in 2018 and 2019 looks to have been premature.
