Spec­tus ‘En Primeur’ of 2014 M. Chapoutier wine fu­tures

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Ever thought of di­ver­si­fy­ing your in­vest­ment port­fo­lio? Spec­tus has started this year’s cam­paign of pre-sell­ing 2014 wines in a process also known as “Wine Fu­tures” or “En Primeur” in French, with wines by M. Chapoutier from the French re­gion of Rhone val­ley. Prices range from 29 eu­ros (“Les Varon­niers”, Red, Crozes Er­mitage) to 159 (“Le Pav­il­lon”, Red, Er­mitage) and Spec­tus will only ac­cept or­ders for a min­i­mum six bot­tles.

“Most of th­ese wines are pro­duced in ex­tremely small quan­ti­ties (some less than 3,500 bot­tles per wine) in the finest and most fa­mous par­cel vine­yards of the house known as “Se­lec­tion Par­cel­laire” and rep­re­sent Michel’s Chapoutier ul­ti­mate ex­pres­sion and art of wine mak­ing,” ex­plains Ge­orge Had­jikyr­i­a­cos, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Spec­tus in Li­mas­sol and Ni­cosia.

“The best wine crit­ics of the world, in­clud­ing Robert Parker, clas­sify th­ese wines among the best in the world while em­pha­sis­ing the fact that th­ese wines rep­re­sent some of the best value wines money can buy,” he adds.

The in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity is based on the fact that 2014 is widely con­sid­ered as an ex­cep­tional vin­tage, pro­duc­ing both ex­cel­lent red and ex­cep­tional white wines and that buy­ers in Cyprus are on equal foot­ing with other mar­kets, such as China, that is tak­ing the wine world by a storm.

Only trou­ble is, th­ese ‘as­sets’ can only re­main liq­uid for a while. It is a shame not to con­sume them!

Last date for or­ders is April 30. For info call Spec­tus on 25370027 or visit www.spec­tus.com.cy .
