Positioning for the Recovery: Catching Champagne’s ‘Fallen Angels’
Krug Collection 1995 (1x75cl)
If you are a collector of back vintage Champagnes, you may find it challenging to source ones from the 1990s. This small allocation of Krug 1995 is an extraordinary opportunity not to be missed. Each bottle is packed individually in a wooden case and is in pristine condition with impeccable provenance. What makes this Champagne even more enticing is that it is priced at a staggering discount compared to the lower-scored Louis Roederer Cristal Vinothèque 1995. It is highly recommended to acquire this Champagne now, before it is too late.
Cos d'Estournel 2003 (12x75cl)
Cos d'Estournel produces exceptional wines, and their wonderfully mature examples should be in every serious wine collector's collection. The 2003 Cos is an excellent wine, receiving double 96 points from Neal Martin and Antonio Galloni, and an impressive 98 points from James Suckling. With only a few cases of their 20-year-old vintage available this year, aficionados of mature Bordeaux should act fast. These perfect cases are a must-have for fans of this outstanding winery.
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2013 (6x75cl)
Quickly proving itself to be a truly exceptional vintage, 2013 produced a Comtes of “energy, depth and vibrancy” in the words of Antonio Galloni (Vinous). Awarding this iconic prestige cuvée a huge 98 points, securing this stunning wine at release looks to be an absolute no-brainer.
Prieure Roch Clos-de-Vougeot Grand Cru Vertical (2014, 2015 and 2019)

The vines are between 45 and 85 years old and the wine has a well-draining soil with stones and pebbles on top of a limestone bedrock. We are thrilled to present an excellent opportunity to purchase the wine at a lower price compared to back vintages. Don't miss out on this golden opportunity!
Bibi Graetz Colore 2011 (1x75cl)
Back vintages of Colore are highly sought after due to their limited quantity. An original 2011 vintage bottle of Colore in its wooden case is a delight.

Back vintages with impeccable provenance commands more premium, and this parcel offers the best value on the market, an enticing opportunity for Italian wine enthusiasts.
Chartogne Taillet Heurtebise Blanc de Blancs Brut NV (6x75cl)

The wine's intense salinity and vibrancy come alive with time in the glass. Available now at a great price, this sensational Champagne should be secured without delay!
Tronquoy 2019 (6x75cl)
Tronquoy's vintage is a unique blend of 50% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot. The Wine Advocate describes the wine as inviting with an aromatic bouquet of blackberry and blueberry fruit, spices, rose petals, crushed violets, and incense. The palate is layered and sensual, representing the essence of St-Estèphe with intense flavors balanced by ample freshness. The 2019 Tronquoy is one of the greatest values of the Médoc and a wine to buy by the case. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

Positioning for the Recovery: Catching Champagne’s ‘Fallen Angels’
This is the first in a new series on how to profit from the potential recovery in fine wine prices.
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012 - Round Trip Back to Release Price Creates Asymmetric Opportunity
The article highlights the investment potential of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012, noting its "Extraordinary" rating and its price retracement to the initial release price, presenting a favorable opportunity for a market recovery. It also mentions upcoming catalysts, like rising consumption and the release of the 2013 vintage, which will likely drive the 2012 vintage's value higher.
Fine Wine Price Correction: What is going on? And How you Profit from It?
Fine Wine has seen a modest pull-back in prices over the past few months. Although the wider market is down only 6.0% from its highs, some high-profile names have dipped a lot more. What is going on? And is this a buying opportunity? If so, what are the most attractive wines?
Lafite Rothschild 2019 – Recent Pullback is Great Buying Opportunity
Lafite Rothschild 2019 is the most attractive vintage on the market right now in terms of quality and price. It has performed fantastically well since release. The recent -12.6% price correction represents a surprising, but welcome, buying opportunity.
How to Use Lower Trading Volumes to Build Great Positions
The rise in global interest rates has led to lower liquidity and wider price variations in the fine wine market, creating an opportunity for savvy investors to strategically place realistic bids and build great positions. Historical patterns and macroeconomic factors suggest that the current lower volume trading is likely to be temporary, making the current bids potentially valuable investments in the future.
Opus One 2019 – Cult Napa with Global Appeal
Opus One 2019 offers a significant discount compared to other top estates and has the potential to be the best Opus One ever with a rating of 97-99 points. Its global appeal is boosted by the prestigious 'La Place de Bordeaux' distribution network, and the absence of the 2020 vintage due to wildfires is only expected to increase demand for the 2019 vintage.
