Long Term Growth

From the prestigious Dom Perignon Rose Gold Methuselah to the ultra-expensive Champagne Avenue Foch 2017, Champagne makes an ideal investment as its value increases over time. Champagne is a luxurious way to show off class, with a wide range of prices and options available.

Originally priced at $1.8 million, a Taste of Diamonds Champagne in its luxurious packaging is now worth around $2 million.

What makes an expensive bottle of Champagne a good investment?

Champagne is a timeless symbol of class and celebration, and its price tag reflects that. But it's not just a fancy lifestyle—producing Champagne is intense. The secondary fermentation process creates its iconic delicate bubbles, and Champagne takes months to mature.

Prestige cuvée, vintage, and non-vintage Champagne all differ in production and cost, but having worldwide reach adds to their weight. Champagne is not just a celebratory treat, but an excellent investment with low volatility and steady value growth over time.

4. 1907 Heidsieck

  • Price: $275,000
  • Type: Vintage

In the late 90s, divers exploring the Baltic Sea discovered a shipwreck containing cases upon cases of 1916 Champagne. Debate continues over the total number of bottles recovered and what the distributor, Caviar House, paid for the bubbly treasure—2,000 bottles of this pricey Champagne fetched an unbelievable sum of about $3 million, or $1,500 per bottle.

The 1907 Heidsieck is worth $275,000. 

A 1999 London auction saw bottles of 1907 Heidsieck Champagne sell for $2,000 to $4,000. These rare and luxurious bottles now command even higher prices.

5. 2011 Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne Nebuchadnezzar 15L 

  • Price: $100,000
  • Type: Sparkling wine

The 15-liter ‘Ace of Spades’ takes six months to make, increasing the value of each bottle and, subsequently, lifting demand. This Cattier family Champagne has been featured in music videos and movies to symbolize affluence—Jay-Z owned a 50% stake in the brand at one point.

The Champagne tastes of pear, nectar, honeysuckle, and sweet butter. A bottle was purchased in 2011 for a Dallas Mavericks' championship celebration at $90,000, but similar ones have since appreciated to $100,000.

6. 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold Methuselah 6L

  • Price: $90,000
  • Type: Brut

The 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold Champagne is highly sought-after and valuable because only 35 bottles of the fine wine were released. It's a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes aged for over 10 years that exudes sophistication.

  • Price: $43,500
  • Type: Vintage

The 1820 Juglar Cuvée is a rare and beautiful artifact discovered by divers in 2010 at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The producer of 95 of the 144 other bottles raised from the shipwreck no longer exists, creating scarcity which only adds to their allure.

A bottle of 1820 Juglar Cuvee found in a Baltic Sea shipwreck is worth $43,500. 

The Juglar's mystique has helped to boost its value, now with the highest rate of $43,500. Its age and survival in a shipwreck boost its popularity.

8.  1959 Dom Perignon Rosé

  • Price: $42,000 
  • Type: Vintage

Dom Perignon 1959 Rosé Champagne, while not being as sought-after as those found at the bottom of the sea, is a rarity. The Dom Perignon brand didn’t release the Rosé publicly after its creation—some say most were sent to the Shah of Iran for the Persian Empire’s 2,500th anniversary celebration.

Are Champagnes a good investment?

The Champagne market has been on a rolling boil in recent years, with the Liv-ex Champagne 50 index reporting 18.7% price growth in 2022. That sustained upward trend is expected to continue through 2028.


According to Cult Wine Investment, annual returns on Champagne investments have been as high as 146.6%, while five-year returns reached 331.7%. Investors turn to Champagne as a stable, real asset amid inflation and volatility in mainstream financial markets.

The global Champagne market is forecast to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% from 2021 to 2028, according to Data Bridge Market Research.

Rising Champagne prices in times of financial turmoil highlight how the luxury market isn’t heavily impacted by recessions or high inflation. Demand for luxury goods remains high despite a down economy, so investors can rely on affluent consumers to sustain the high prices of fine Champagne bottles.
