Investment Finder - Find Investments Matching your Criteria

Cru’s ‘Investment Finder’ is our exclusive tool which lets you screen the entire universe of fine wine for opportunities.

Investment Finder screens the fine wine universe by:

  • Price:
    Sort by different price points.

    Find opportunities based on critic scores.
  • Liquidity:
    Fine Wine trading volumes are improving all the time. This field allows you to identify the wines which trade mostly frequently.
  • Wine Rating:
    Our unique ‘Wine Rating’ scale - from AAA to B - takes into account the four main attributes associated with long-term performance: i) quality of the producer, ii) quality of the year, iii) average critic rating and iv) liquidity. It lets you choose safer or more speculative investments.
  • Price Momentum:
    Our ‘Price Momentum’ indicator shows the weighted price performance over the past 12 months.
  • Relative Valuation:
    This tool analyses each wine against other wines by the same producer. It shows relative under or over-valuation.

Selling Wines / Realising Gains

Charges

There are no subscription fees for using the Cru Wine Portfolio. Your account is free to set up. We don’t charge commission when you buy wines. If you sell your wines through us we take a standard selling commission, which varies according to the level of assets you have.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have tried to answer the most common questions here, but please contact us for more details at trade@cruworldwine.com.


How do I apply?

You can start building a fine wine portfolio today. You don’t need specialist knowledge or training, simply create a free trading account.


How do I follow the progress of my investment?

Your portfolio is valued in real time using independent marks provided by the internationally respected Liv-ex.com exchange.


Your portfolio performance can be viewed at https://sg.cruworldwine.com/investment and you will receive monthly updates with your fine wine portfolio valuation.


How will I realise the value of my investment?

Like private equity or property, fine wine is best viewed as a patient investment. But our platform enables you to trade in and out as often as you like. Once your wine has reached your target exit price you can set it for sale at your chosen price.


When you sell wines through the platform your account is immediately credited with the net proceeds, which you can either use against future purchases or you can cash out. You will receive a cash transfer within 30 days of sale.


Is there someone to help me manage my Portfolio?

Cru retains a team of highly trained and knowledgeable fine wine account managers in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore and Russia. We also travel to most of the world’s financial cities to present research and meet clients. Cru is not authorised to provide formal investment advice, but our team of advisors will help structure your portfolio optimally for long-term price appreciation.


What are the fees?

There are no subscription fees to use the Cru platform. All our personal advice and tools are free of charge, and there is no commission on purchasing wines. There is a small fee to cover the cost of storage (which we pass on at cost price), but this fee is much lower than you would pay to store other commodities, such as gold. We take a standard selling commission, which varies according to the level of assets you have.


Is investing in fine wine safe?

The security of your assets is of paramount importance to us, all wine stored with Cru is kept in secure conditions in one of our three storage facilities. You can see the location and status of all your wines at all times in your Account Management section. Cru cannot guarantee your wines will increase in value, but if you buy the best wines from the best vintages and show a little patience history suggests that you realise significant capital gains.


Are gains on wines taxable?

Cru is not authorised to offer formal tax advice. For UK investors the relevant HMRC legislation states that wine is a “chattel”, and therefore any deposal of less than £6,000 (January 2018) has no chargeable gain. Many UK investors also take advantage of the “wasting asset” exemption, where 100% of the gain is tax free if the wine is expected to last less than 50 years. But all investors should take appropriate advice from a regulated advisor on their own tax status.

    • Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2015 is the 2nd wine of Haut-Brion. It is the highest ever scoring Clarence (93+). • We are recommending it because it is undervalued versus the other 2015 First Growth second wines, and because we believe it will appreciate with the 100-point Haut-Brion 2015 over time. • Le Clarence 2015 is 50% cheaper than the other First Growth second wines from 2015, despite having a higher score and a much better scored first wine. • Drinking window for Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2015 is to 2039, making it a long-dated investment wine. • We believe it can appreciate for 20 years at almost 6%, to reach HK$18,800 at the end of its drinking window in 2039.

  • NEW RELEASE: Château Palmer 2017 97-98 (JS) $2,190 per 6 | 30% Below 2016. Highest scoring Margaux of the Bordeaux 2017 vintage

    BORDEAUX 2017 CHÂTEAU PALMER 97-98pts | £1,175 IB per 6 Plus 92-93pts Alter Ego 17% Below 2016! "This is a sexy and well-formed 2017... Extremely long and last for minutes." James Suckling "Super fresh... Mouthwatering... This stands out from the pack." Wine Spectator Easily one of the most well-regarded wines each year, Château Palmer is the Margaux for those in the know. Scoring a superb 97-98 points, this is one of the best wines of the vintage, though you could pretty much say that about any Palmer release! When we tasted at the Château earlier this month we were struck by the balance, freshness and stylish finesse it showed. With its release this morning we are happy to see that in terms of value it is as good as it gets. Releasing at a full 17% below 2016's market value, and less expensive than any top vintage on the market (see table below), this represents a rare, genuine value for blue-chip Bordeaux. A classic top performer, with quality that regularly challenges the First Growths. Palmer is not as dear as Château Margaux, yet always receives the same range of scores; James Suckling gave a matching 97-98 points to both in 2017. You might not immediately think of Palmer as a good value wine, but that is exactly what it is! Alongside the Grand Vin, Alter Ego de Palmer offers very good £-per-points value, scoring 92-93 points and offered at £295 IB per case. The 2017 is, as Suckling puts it, "a serious second wine" and we are of the opinion that its freshness and clarity make it one of the best Alter Egos of the past decade. Always a popular second wine, it will age as well or better than many a Grand Vin. There is a lot to like about this vintage, being described as "rich and very deep" as well as "layered and flavourful". The 2017 edition of Palmer and its magnificent second wine is one of the best tandem performances of 2017, and as you can expect, it is bound to sell quickly!

  • MATURE MAGNUMS OF PENFOLDS GRANGE: A Great Way to Collect

    We have written before that Australia’s Penfolds Grange is the premier New World wine brand. Grange is produced from Shiraz grapes (with some Cabernet Sauvignon) and comes from the best parcels of Penfolds’ South Australia estates. Production is a closely guarded secret, but 7,000 to 9,000 cases annually is a good estimate. Penfolds (and owner Treasury Wine Estates) is very ambitious for the Grange brand and has succeeded in creating a long-term collectable wine which rivals the best of the Old World. No fine wine brand is working harder in China to develop its reputation (and hence pricing power). Grange has a long and illustrious history, first produced in 1951. Older vintages are increasingly rare and are now highly collectable. Only a very small quantity of Grange is bottled in magnum each year.

  • AUSTRALIAN PERFECTION! | BUY the 100 Point The Laird 2012 | Lowest World Prices - VERY LIMITED OFFER - DON'T DELAY!

    The Laird is the top wine by Torbreck, one of the most prestigious and highest priced wines from the whole of the New World.

    The 2012 joins the 2008 and 2005 in scoring a perfect 100 points from Robert Parker. The 2005 and 2008 are almost impossible to buy anywhere in the world now. With a Drinking Window until 2039, this wine has over two more decades of improvement and price appreciation potential in the bottle. The Laird scores AA as an Investment Rating from Cru. Only one notch below the best possible AAA rating for long-term investment potential.

    "Deep garnet colored with a touch of remaining purple at the rim, the 2012 The Laird is one of those wines you could just go on smelling all day. It opens with a complex perfume of kirsch, dried mulberries, blackberry tart and spice cake over cloves, mocha, dusty earth, incense, star anise, yeast extract and aged beef. The full-bodied palate is drop-dead seductive, unfurling in the mouth to reveal exotic spice, meat, earth and berry preserves layers, supported by firm, velvety tannins and seamless acid. The finish seems to go on forever - and this is exactly what you want it to do. Stunning."

  • NEWS ALERT! | Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 | Scores a Massive 96 Points by Robert Parker. Amazing Value at only SG$270 / 6 - NEW STOCK AT OFFER PRICE

    * Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 has just been scored 96 points by Robert Parker.

    *This makes it the second highest scoring Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino ever, behind the 97 point 2010. The lowest price in Singapore for the 2010 is SG$900 / 6. This makes the 2013 simply amazing value at only SG$270 / 6.

    *As global attention focuses ever more on the "impeccable reputation" (as Robert Parker describes it) of this estate it seems very unlikely that prices are going to remain at the current undervalued level for much longer. Whether for drinking or collection, we strongly recommend buying the 2013 at current prices.

    * Robert Parker writes of the 2013:

    The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino lives up to the impeccable reputation garnered by this estate over the years. This is a profound and beautifully rendered Sangiovese that delivers bold and luscious fruit quality with black cherry and spicy plum at the start. The bouquet follows through with mild oak notes of smoke, tar and toasted nut. There is another aromatic component that includes crushed stone and dried herb or mint. This Brunello shows elegant evolution in the glass and promises a very long aging future ahead. Some 200,000 bottles were made, so it should be easy to locate this excellent wine.

  • IL POGGIONE BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2013 | Too Cheap for a 96 RP Brunello

    • The just awarded Robert Parker score of 96 on Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 creates a significant investment opportunity.

    • Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (RP97) has already made collectors a lot of money (115%), and we expect the 2013 to do the same.

    • Merchants are still pricing the 2013 based on the old James Suckling score of 92, creating a short-term buying opportunity.

  • Pontert-Canet 2015 Special Offer Price | 98 Point wine for Celebrated 2015 Vintage | NEW STOCK ADDED

    * 2015 is establishing a reputation as a long-term "investment" vintage which will reward patient holders with price appreciation. There is little doubt that it is the best Bordeaux vintage since 2010. There is no question that wines from this vintage will improve and develop complexity over many decades to come.

    * Chateau Pontet-Canet has achieved phenomenal things in the last decade. The 100 point scores achieved by its 2009 and 2010 vintages from Robert Parker moved this estate into the premier league of famed Bordeaux estates. The 100 point 2009 and 2010 wines are now impossible to buy below SG$300 per bottle in Singapore. Although not achieving quite the same perfect score, the 2015 is the closest thing to those legendary efforts and is available (temporarily) for a little over half the price.

    * Our price of SG$157 per bottle is the lowest available in Singapore right now. We have only 44 cases (6x75cl) for the world at this price and we do not expect them to remain unsold for long.

    * It is worth recapping the universal acclaim achieved by Pontet-Canet 2015 amongst wine critics:

    Robert Parker (96+ points)

    Antonio Galloni (95-98 points)

    James Suckling (98 points)

    Jancis Robinson (18 points)

    * We feel buying the 2015 at these levels is a good decision from a long-term drinking aan collection perspective.

  • 50 years on, it doesn't get any better than 1968 Taylor's Single Harvest Very Old Tawny Port!

    * For anyone celebrating a fiftieth birthday this year, they may be aware that 1968 was no great shakes as a vintage. According to Michael Broadbent, Bordeaux was ‘atrocious’, Burgundy and the Rhone were ‘poor’ (the Hospices de Beaune auction was cancelled) and Champagne doesn’t even get a mention. Port, Madeira (or perhaps California) are just about the only places where 1968 was not a complete write-off, it might seem.

    * There is hope yet for salvaging this vintage though as Taylor’s have since acquired a fabulous stock of old cask-aged wine including colheitas or ‘harvest’ wines (effectively dated tawnies), some dating back to the nineteenth century. Tawny Port is a wonderfully misunderstood phenomenon that benefits from being both knock-out brilliant and undervalued. Crucially, these wines have been well cared for in the interim and are being bottled in limited quantities to celebrate important anniversaries.

    * We are delighted to offer the new release of Taylor’s 1968 Very Old Single Harvest Port, which has understandably been selling out very quickly after release due to its strictly limited volumes. This is a fantastic opportunity to offer the fifth in this series of very special 50 year old ports.

  • New and Unusual Release: Historical XIXth Century 2014 from Chateau Palmer | 4 Cases Left

    * Prior to the establishment of the AOC system which regulates wine production in France today, there once existed a wine known as a "Bordeaux Hermitage". When Thomas Duroux, the Director of Château Palmer had the opportunity to try one of these historic treasures, he was inspired to revitalize this tradition by blending wine from the Palmer vineyards located on the rises of the Margaux appellation with a small measure of grapes from the northern Côtes du Rhône. The result is something truly one of kind, which explains why these very limited releases are so highly coveted by wine lovers eager to own a piece of history.

    * According to French wine regulations today, a wine which is blended from different regions loses its geographic origin as well as its vintage, which makes the Historical XIXth Century 2014 possibly one of the most exciting "table wines" in the world!

    * The blend is 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon from Château Palmer and 10% comes from Côtes du Rhônes septentrionale.

    * ETA into our UK warehouse is May 2018.

    * Very limited availability of (3x75cl) packs available.

  • AWARD-WINNING "ANTIQUARIAN" - Gold Medal Winner | CWSA Best Value | "Utterly gorgeous" says Jancis Robinson

    * Antiquarian is a unique project from South Australia that in the few years since it's been operating has garnered tons of praise and attention.

    * Recently taking home a GOLD MEDAL at the China Wine & Spirits Awards in the category of Best Value, these are no-brainers for bargain-hunters, as well as for those looking for a more thoughtful style of wine.

    * That is exactly why Jancis Robinson is a big fan, regularly awarding high scores well above her average for these esoteric blends, describing them as "wines to spend time with".

    * The "utterly gorgeous" Pinot Noir-Shiraz earned 18/20 points from Robinson, while the last vintage of the White Field Blend received 94 points from Decanter. The recently released 2017 is yet to be scored, but our expectations are high.

    * These are cerebral wines that surprise, engage and completely enthral with their unique set of aromas and texture. If you are looking for a departure from the Australian norm, here it is!

  • Buy Penfolds Grange 2012 / 2013 Magnums based on Price / Score - SORRY SOLD OUT

    Penfolds Grange is arguably the premier New World fine wine brand. Penfolds (and owner Treasury Wine Estates) is extremely ambitious for the Grange brand and are putting a huge amount of marketing effort into driving up the price. No fine wine brand is working harder in China to develop its reputation (and hence pricing power) than Penfolds. Since the first release of the first Grange in 1951, only three vintages have ever received a perfect 100/100 score from The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) and only one from James Suckling. 2013 and 2012 have received that rarest of accolades putting them alongside 1976 and 2008 in the history of the very greatest vintages of Australia's most famous wine. The 150cl magnums trade at a premium to the 75cl bottles because they are rare in comparison. It is a closely guarded secret how much Grange is made each year, but what is known is that only a tiny percentage of the production is bottled in Magnum format. We have only been able to find a limited number of Grange Magnums verified as available in the Asian market, and these are shown below. The crucial number is the price per point score, which for the 2012 and 2013 is significantly lower than the rest of the Penfolds Grange ‘curve’.

  • First Offers from "Awesome Vintage" of Northern Rhône 2016

    Following the hype of the 2015 vintage was always going to be challenging, but 2016 is another brilliant vintage for the region. The Northern Rhône had a "terrific" year with the appellations of Cornas, Hermitage and Saint-Joseph making some truly magnificent wines. Rhône authority Jeb Dunnuck (previous Rhône critic for Wine Advocate), commends 2016 for its "classic characters, beautiful balance, and terrific purity of fruit, all of which will be loved by the traditionalists out there". Regional powerhouses Vincent Paris in Cornas, Rostaing in Côte-Rôtie and Ferraton in Hermitage are at the top of their game, producing structured wines with sweet tannins. 2016 is all about purity and elegance, and their delightful rounded style makes them much more approachable earlier on than their 2015 predecessors. Amidst the Burgundy buzz at this time of year, these superb Northern Rhônes are a relative bargain compared to the often mega-expensive 1ers and Grands Crus of the Côte d'Or.
