What are Bordeaux Futures ?

(or "En Primeur")

En Primeur is the purchase of Bordeaux wine while it is still maturing in the barrel. 2023 is different not only because of its special growing season but also the advancements in viticulture and winemaking over the last decade.

Purchasing Quantities

Many of the wines we offer are very rare and extremely limited. All wines must be purchased in 3, 6 or 12 bottle sets as noted on each wine listed on our website. You may order multiple sets. The price you see for each wine is the total price of the bottles in each set! (Not the price of each bottle)

7 Reasons To Invest In Bordeaux Futures

  • To purchase wines at the initial release prices. Wines re-released after bottling or sold at retail in an excellent vintage will usually be considerably more expensive. 

  • To secure allocations of small-production wines that may not be commercially available after "en primeur" release. When they are gone, they are gone.
  • To own a wine from the start of its life - provenance is priceless.
 You know that you bought it and have controlled its storage from the beginning.
  • To purchase a birth year vintage for a child, grandchild or godchild.

  • To purchase a wedding year vintage
  • To be able to choose large format wines – magnums or double magnums. Or to be able to order half bottles – especially in Sauternes.

  • To purchase the latest vintages of a Château that you have followed and purchased over the years. This is especially important for wines where there is always more demand than there is supply.

How Does It Work ?

Bordeaux futures work like other market-traded commodities. Investors buy wine that has not yet reached the market. This allows the investor to obtain a potentially rare wine at a bargain and watch it increase in value. The wine is still in the barrels, unbottled, and won't be released for 12 to 18 months. Wines will begin to arrive after about 2 years. 

Many of these wines have very limited availability. Purchases are on a first-come, first-served basis and are available by the solid case only (12 bottles unless otherwise noted). Bottle prices are displayed for comparison purposes only and do not indicate that these wines are available by the individual bottle.

In the weeks that followed the barrel tastings in Bordeaux, the experts have published their reviews of the wines, and we have published scores from the main publications when available. We are able to offer you "premier tranche" (first prices), because we have the ability to purchase the wines at the very first and best prices!
