Robert Parker, the US doyen of drinks critics, has spoken and the world of fine wine investors has listened. His latest pronouncements on the 2010 vintage of wines shows them to be of a great quality.
No fewer than 10 wines have achieved a perfect score of 100, while many of the great first-growth wines of Bordeaux – the likes of Latour, Lafite, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, and Haut Brion have all achieved very high ratings. But what does this stamp of approval from the world's best heeded critic mean to those who are interested in adding a little French red to their investment portfolio.
"The 2000 Bordeaux vintage is so impressive that 2001's offering is often overlooked - but it's a hidden gem" says Mark Hedley
