An Introduction To Burgundy

Understanding the opportunity in Burgundy’s fine wine market

Burgundy has consistently been one of the top performing wine regions in recent years, providing a significant proportion of the most highly prized and valuable wines in the world. The region is home to the iconic Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC), whose wines have achieved record-breaking prices at auction and trade in the fine wine market at 5 and 6-figure sums. As a consequence Burgundy has demanded the attention of fine wine investors and delivered some extraordinary returns to date with early indicators suggesting brilliant growth potential for the future.

Our ‘Introduction to Burgundy’ report penned by Geoffrey Dean (wine journalist, member of the Circle of Wine Writers and an Associate of the Institute of Wine & Spirits) discusses how Burgundy differs from other key wine regions, which are the most important producers of investment-grade wine and the emerging brands to watch.
