Jamie's Cellar

My first ever fine wine purchase was four cases of Leoville Barton 1995 and 1996. The term ‘investment cellar’ wasn’t around then, it was all about the ‘working cellar’ where the idea was to buy two cases of each wine, store for ten years and then after 10 years sell one of them (hopefully it would have doubled in value but that is never guaranteed!). With the money I made, I would reinvest and it would allow me to drink the wine I had saved for virtually nothing! My current cellar is a combination of investment and drinking – 60% Bordeaux and 20% Burgundy with an assortment of goodies from elsewhere and I have definitely been buying more Italian, Spain and South American in recent years. I would always advise people to buy what they enjoy and I have helped many customers to build fantastic collections both for investment and drinking over the years. 

This is a selection of wines that have earned a place in my cellar and I would personally recommend for drinking right now.
