Blue Chip wines, like Blue Chip stocks, are highly coveted labels from well-established wineries and with more price stability than the rest of the market. The wines that fall into this category include select Bordeaux and Burgundies, a couple super-Tuscans and a few cult wines. There are several reputable sources for identifying Blue Chip wines. Our favorites are the Sotheby's annual wine market report and the Liv-Ex market details.
