Guarantee of Provenance
En primeur wines have a fantastic advantage; that collectors receive them directly from the Chateau in question. This all but guarantees perfect provenance.
If you are a keen wine collector or even an investor, then “en primeur” wines will be of particular interest due to their young age. This makes them a prudent investment due to the fact that the potential price increases over time.
En primeur wines typically go for lower prices due to the fact that they haven’t yet matured and no – one really knows how this will pan out. If purchased from a chateau of high calibre, then this is unlikely to be an issue, but there are no guarantees. This makes them low cost compared to other wine investments.
In the majority of instances, the secondary market trend is for actual physical stock. So, collectors and fine wine investors are able to take advantage of en primeur gains.
