En Primeur

Historically a way of helping wine estate’s cash flow by selling from barrel, today en primeur represents the buyer’s opportunity to secure opening allocations.

En primeur offers the opportunity to secure allocations of some of the world’s finest wines while they are still in barrel, ahead of being bottled and shipped to the UK, at release price. For the most sought-after wines where demand outstrips supply, en primeur is the only way to buy, before the wine reappears on the secondary market at likely higher prices.

The latest Bordeaux vintage is released for sale en primeur in the spring following the harvest, with the Rhône next in the autumn and Burgundy a few months later in January. Other offers are made throughout the year from across the Old and New Worlds.
