Rodgers agrees, adding: “A good


broker should be able to do a lot of the hard work for you, will have their finger ‘on the pulse’ and always act as a point of reference.”


Are we as a nation more knowledgeable about wine today? “Wine is a vast and often intimidating subject”, says McCloskey. “In past generations, the definition of quality was the preserve of the wine producer, and consumers who did not


like a particular style


of wine were often made to feel uncultured. Globalisation and the accompanying rapid worldwide access to information has resulted in a more knowledgeable and empowered consumer with a more sophisticated understanding of product value and a discerning demand for quality.”


What are the most popular fine wines and are these bought to lay down to drink or as an investment only? “The range sold at The Vinorium is vast and diverse, as are the customers that buy it,” explains McCloskey.


“Since 2005, Château Pontet Canet has been our biggest selling wine and is bought for both for consumption and investment. The Vinorium has a


unique leverage in its buying


power derived from the Bordeaux specialist, Z&B Vintners, who buy direct from châteaux and vineyards across the world.” Investing in wines with Justerini & Brooks can mean collecting wines from the more traditional French vineyards of Burgundy


(it is the leading specialist in the region, importing from more than 50 domaines), or getting to know the increasingly popular Piedmonte region. “In Burgundy, there are just five Grand Cru monopoles (vineyards with a single owner): La Romanée, La Romanée-Conti, La Tache, La Grand Rue and Clos de Tart. Through these,


collectors can


form a greater understanding of Burgundy and its wines in a region which is quite complicated (it is a patchwork of small parcels of land from rolling hills to rocky outcrops),” says Delaney.

“Top names and rising stars to look for are Domaine du Comte Liger Belair, Lamarche, Cecile Tremblay, Bruno Clair and Arnaud Mortet for red, and for white, Bachelet Monnot, Paul Pillot and Chateau de Meursault. “Estates in Italy such as Voerzio,


Azelia, Altare, Paulo Scavino are producing interesting and highly collectible wines, while Germany is an area to watch -


look at the


Grosses Gewachs dry Rieslings and the top Späteburgunder (Pinot Noirs) from the likes of Keller,


Kesseler, Emrich Schönleber and Huber."
