Fun Fact of the Month
“Did you know that Château du Tertre (Margaux) is starting to produce a small quantity of white wine?
It’s still in barrel, but will be out in a few weeks”
The world financial markets have had a turbulent and negative start of the year.
Fortunately, fine wine has had an excellent start of the year with a market index performance of +1.0% in January 2016.
We have throughout a number of past newsletters, publications and articles mentioned the benefits of the low correlation of fine wine with world equities and bonds. This past month was once again a good example of this benefit.We have been happy to receive positive feedback from our investors: “Thank you Cru Wine Investment for your support in this investment, you guys are on the ball!”

Cru Wine Investment interview with the Drinks Business, December 2th, 2015Wine investment ‘good for diversification’
While fine wine is regarded as a strong in terms of historical returns compared to other investments, its diversification benefits are also being praised.
Château Pape Clement is one of the oldest châteaux in Bordeaux. The first harvest took place in 1252, when it was owned by Bertrand de Goth, younger of a noble family from the Bordeaux region. Archbischop of Bordeaux, Bertrand de Goth became Pope in 1305 under the name of Clement V. This is where the Château inherited its name from.This historic estate is very successful today, with Robert Parker, for example, rating the 2010 vintage with 100 points. The success started when Bernard Margrez took over the management in the mid 1980s. He introduced more rigorous selection in the vineyards, as well as installing stainless steel vats and raising the percentage of new oak barrels used in the maturation process.
The vineyards of Château Pape Clement cover around 32 hectares, planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (40%) and small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. The Cru Wine Investment Team was highly impressed by the quality of the white wine.
