Investment Wine Evening – Bordeaux En Primeur 2018

We hosted our first Waud Investment Wines campaign evening for the Bordeaux En Primeur 2018 season last night at JM Finn’s head office in Coleman Street.

This is the run up to our 5th consecutive campaign with Bordeaux En Primeur and we were pleased to have nearly 50 guests in the room – a mixture of current Waud Investment Wine investors as well as potential investors going forward.

After a fizz reception where we were enjoying our Mas de Daumas Gassac Rose Frizant 2017, we sat down for the 45 minute presentation where we covered who Waud Wines are, what En Primeur is all about, what our investment strategy is, what are we doing in preparing for potential Brexit outcomes, review how some of our current portfolios are performing as well as discuss the early findings of the 2018 vintage in Bordeaux – all very exciting stuff!

After talking about the investment side, it was then a treat to taste three different vintages of Chateau Montrose from Saint-Estèphe. We enjoyed bottles of 2015, 2014 and then 2008 in magnum – all very different in style and interestingly different guests did have a preference for the different vintages – there was no stand out winner.

For those that were staying for the long haul, we then showed our ‘Club Claret’ from Montagne-St-Emilion, Vieux Chateau Saint Andre 2014 (the owner of this vineyard was the head winemaker from famed Petrus).
