Bordeaux has always been the focal point of the business. ‘After the 2009 and 2010 en primeur campaigns, where quality was exceptional but prices were incredibly high, some of the gloss came off for collectors,’ he remarks of the Bordeaux market. ‘However, concerted efforts by châteaux both in quality and price terms have restored faith.’
The team at BI can get clients building a portfolio with £25,000, but it’s above the £100,000 mark that the real fun starts. ‘We believe investors should look to a minimum ten-plus-year horizon for their portfolios,’ says Boom.
