En Primeur campaign reinforces market correction

Each year June spells one thing for the wine market: En Primeur. With the world turned upside down, the Bordelais pitched their tents and another new vintage.

Despite a short campaign that will be remembered for the wrong reasons, many estates produced outstanding quality; although masters of selling each vintage as “the best ever”, when Neil Martin says similar, ears begin to prick.

This year was more than a chance to purchase the latest vintage, but served as a barometer for the health of the market. The headline? Undoubtedly the prices. Across the board releases were reduced by an average of 21% compared to 2018. An acknowledgement by those in Bordeaux of a number of things we will explore in more depth.


To hold or sell: Understanding how to review your portfolio

Elsewhere the world’s market commentators are all beginning to sing from the same gloomy song sheet. Our economic future will not include a V-shaped recovery and the various timelines for the recovery being suggested all find congruence in their projections of a slow and hard-fought retracement.

Even with the initial shock of COVID dissipating, the effects are going to be seismic and lasting, and as such you should plan and take action to prepare yourself and your entire portfolio for the tests ahead.

With this in mind, we thought we would suggest a plan of action for those of you wishing to know, should I hold or should I sell?
