Vinfolio Releases Special 2020 Bordeaux Fine Wine Investment Report 


Napa, California | August 26, 2021 – Vinfolio, one of the country’s leading fine wine companies, recently released a comprehensive Fine Wine Investment Report on Bordeaux’s excellent 2020 vintage. As a fine wine investment advisor, storage facility, and the U.S.’s largest fine wine marketplace, Vinfolio moves with the market to create actionable insights for clients. Already a leader in Bordeaux sales, Vinfolio has seen a dramatic 78-percent increase in Bordeaux business in 2021. The Fine Wine Investment Report, 2020 Bordeaux Edition can be downloaded here at Vinfolio.com.

Over the last three decades, investment-grade fine wine has performed very strongly against most major asset classes. For those looking for a reliable fine wine investment, Bordeaux—especially when purchased en primeur—is hard to beat. The 2020 vintage released this summer is of extraordinary quality and value. Vinfolio’s investment guide explores the recent vintage and the best wines to invest in today for future growth.

Highlights from the second Fine Wine Investment Report include: 

  • En Primeur Overview – Great potential returns meet low-risk investments in Bordeaux’s 2020 vintage. When they are released at this early stage, wines are often priced at the lowest they will ever be and then are expected to increase in value by an average of 10 percent, year over year. 
  • VinPulse Current Market Overview – Market conditions for this third Bordeaux vintage in a “rare trilogy of excellent vintages” (James Suckling) are good for price appreciation from release. Demand is up in response to a rebounding economy and volumes from most châteaux are down.
  • The Harvest – Overall, 2020 was a very warm vintage with auspicious bursts of rainfall and sunshine. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties performed exceptionally well in these conditions.
  • Vinfolio Top 10 – The hottest 2020 Bordeaux wines, based on critic consensus and legacy growth statistics.
  • 2020 Left-Bank Bordeaux – A close look at the potential of five of the best Left-Bank, Cabernet-Sauvignon-dominant selections from Pessac-Léognan, Margaux, and Pauillac.
