Advantages of buying wines en primeur:

Best Price

​Wines are typically less expensive during the en primeur period as buyers are able to purchase sought after wines at the beginning of their life, before they significantly appreciate in value.

Provenance

​Purchasing ‘en primeur’ assures provenance (the wine’s storage history), which is key as wine sourced directly from the Chateau carries a premium.

Bordeaux Futures

In Bordeaux, wines are offered for sale by the Chateaux en primeur in the spring while the wines are still in barrel, almost 2 years before they are bottled and released onto the market.

We offer our clients the opportunity to purchase ‘wine futures’ or ‘en primeur’ from all of the top chateaux of the region, while stock lasts.

Improving Asset

​As fine wines mature their quality improves and they become more valuable. Therefore, the wines tend to appreciate regardless of the state of the broader market.
