Fine wines: the best investment of the decade

The price of a Lafite Rothschild 1982 grew 876% over the last 10 years, according to Liv-Ex

Fine wine was the best investment of the decade, according to the Liv-ex Fine Wine Investables Index.

The top French vintages yielded far higher returns than equities, gold and property - and the average price of a good Bordeaux jumped 138% throughout the noughties (roughly 11% each year).

Lafite Rothschild 1982 was reportedly the best performer, rising in value almost 10-fold throughout the decade.

A bottle worth 2,613 in 2000 sold for 25,000 at the end of November - an incredible appreciation of 876%.

Live-Ex's report cites limited supply and a growing influx of buyers from China and Asia as the two main factors which support the viability of wine as an investment.

And, with the Chinese and Asia buyers markets still small and growing, the prices of fine wines should continue to soar in the coming years.
