Peter Lunzer has an enviable track record and reputation in managing Wine Investments and in hosting Corporate Tasting Events, dating back over more than 30 years. Peter was a co-founding Director of one of the first UK based wine investment companies, back in 2003. The management of LWI encompasses many specific skills and is shared between UK based Director, Peter Lunzer: Belgium based Director, Neil Rafferty:
LWI offer wine investment products globally with opportunities for institutional and private investors to participate in carefully designed wine fund structures as well as managed accounts. Investing in fine wines has often proven to be a profitable strategy. Fine wine investment has outperformed all other forms of recognised investment for the last 25 years despite the significant recent price corrections for some wines.
The three pillars of what Lunzer Wine Investment offers, are Corporate Events| Wine Investment | Wine Real Estate.
Wine Investment is not a new concept and when tasting many vintages of a great wine, it becomes obvious why some vintages are destined for an inflationary future, whilst others, when they run out, are forgotten. Being the owner of the best vintages means that if you ever want to sell the wines, there should be a queue of willing buyers. We act on behalf of individuals creating portfolios for them as well as advising on collective investment schemes
Our second pillar revolves around exclusive tasting events, where luxurious wines are served.
For example, have you ever tried at the same time, 6 vintages of a famous Bordeaux Chateaux, spanning 15+ years, served with a specially prepared menu ? We source the wines, advise on venues and select menus to make each occasion become appropriately memorable.
The third pillar of LWI, is based on our understanding that some individuals or groups may like to own their own wine estates. We have a relatively unique offering in Tuscany, Italy, where existing wine estates can be bought with a management contract to oversee every aspect of running the estate. We also have contacts in other wine regions and specifically Bordeaux.
Latour 1996 (3 cases)
3 cases 12x75cl
The 1996 is a fabulous wine that should rival, and even eclipse the extraordinary 1995. The 1996 is huge, massive, it boasts an opaque ruby/purple color, as well as extraordinary, thick, monster-sized fruit, glycerin, and extract on the palate, an a finish that lasts for 40 seconds. In addition to being a classic Pauillac, it is a textbook Latour, with formidable power, compelling purity, and remarkable presence on the palate. The nose is just beginning to offer some of the minerals, roasted herbs, grilled meats, cassis, and blackberry character of this great first- growth. Full bodied and layerded, with amazing power and richness, but no sensesof heaviness, this is a wine to buy for your children. Anticipated maturity:2015-2040
