The Left Bank in Bordeaux is home to some of the most renowned and prestigious wine appellations in the world. This investment thesis for this offering centers on relative value by focusing on Grand Cru Classe wines that offer the same caliber scoring as Bordeaux’s First Growths, but at a much lower entry point. The collection consists of wines from the heralded châteaux of Haut Bailly, Smith Haut Lafitte, Lynch Bages, and Montrose. At the time of calculation, the thesis price was 8.54% below Vint’s estimated Fair Market Value (FMV), indicating a favorable entry price for investors.
Moreover, the 2018 and 2019 vintage wines from this collection are currently valued at 36.44% less than the famed 2009 and 2010 vintages of the same wines, yet were only scored 0.07 points lower by critics (96.38 vs. 96.31), which points to a strong relative value for these bottlings. When compared to Bordeaux’s First Growths from the same vintages (excluding Latour - not yet released), the collection's average FMV price is -81.52% lower, yet only 1.6 points lower in score, further indicating the strong value proposition of this offering.
The average scores for the producers featured in this collection have increased substantially over the past 10 years, rising from 92 points to 95.7 (2012-2014 vintages compared to 2019-2021), indicating a material improvement in quality over time. This sustained increase in quality can be an important catalyst for increasing market share and top-of-mind awareness among collectors and consumers.
In summary, the consistent improvement in scores over time, and global brand recognition for the region (and the châteaux), combined with the attractive entry point, make the Left Bank Bordeaux Values Collection a unique investment opportunity.
