Buying En Primeur - means purchasing wine that is still maturing in the barrel and has not yet been bottled.
The top chateaux in Bordeaux offer the majority of their wines for sale as En Primeur in the spring following the harvest. As a result, this is the first opportunity to purchase the new vintage.
En-Primeur is one of the most exciting journeys for wine enthusiasts.

PRICE. Buying wine whilst still in barrel offers the chance for collectors to get involved at the lowest market offer price.
AVAILABILITY.Buying En-Primeur allows to buy the most highly demanded wines that may be virtually impossible to find when they are released on the market in a variety of different formats such as half bottles, magnums and larger-sized bottles.
SOURCING. Wines are delivered via the most direct route from the Chateau, ensuring absolute provenance.
COLLECTION. En-Primeur wines are an excellent way of building a collection for a special occasion (anniversary year, child birth year, graduation, etc...)
You can start booking your Bordeaux 2021s!
The 2021 vintage was a challenge for the winemakers, but it will not be a challenge for us wine lovers!
The weather conditions (especially rain in June and July ) led the estates to loose of a big share of the harvest. Globally, there will be 35% less wine released by top labels this year compared to average.
But what will be bottled meets high standards: Nice conditions in August and September brought the crops to a nice maturity and to style of vintage that reminds us the 90s, 2002, 2008, 2011 that we all love drinking.
The first benchmark prices released (Carruades de Lafite, Pavie, Cheval Blanc,...) let us think that the 2021s will have prices close to the 2020s. Sometimes even a bit cheaper. That is good news, as the low yields and global price inflation could have led to another price strategy from the estates!
