Pre-sells is also known as 'en primeur'. It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, months before official release.
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn't enough to go around. Pre-release guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines - providing you are quick!
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £21.84 a case at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Prices are for 12 bottles unless otherwise specified.
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.

The German Wine Guide notes, "Few in the Rheingau make finer wines than Leitz". The estate is located in Rüdesheim, at the western end of the Rheingau and run today by Johannes Leitz, who took over the 28 hectare family property in 1985, aged just 21. Rüdesheim is the region that "established Germany's reputation for world class white wines" (Hugh Johnson) and the Magdalenenkreuz Riesling Spätlese is a wonderful example. Fermentation is left to the natural processes of 'wild yeasts' and, in a technique borrowed from Meursault, the wines are left on their lees until spring. This results in a full, rich and complex wine that is both medium sweet, honeyed and minerally fresh. A wine to cellar or savour now with fine fish or pork dishes.
