More About Wine Futures

Buying Futures—also known as En Primeur—means purchasing wine that is still maturing in the barrel. This is wine that has not yet been bottled. To purchase wine at the first release price, when the margins made by wine merchants are smallest. In most vintages, although not always the case, the price of the wine increases and the margins made by wine merchants also increase once the wine is offered for sale in bottle.

Tasting Note

Jamie Ritchie: Healthy, bright, voluptuous blackberry and blackcurrant. Spicy and creamy with good intensity. Juicy, vibrant fruit with a luscious texture. Harmonious with sweet fruit, ripe tannins, and freshness. Fine grained tannins. Beautifully integrated. Lovely fresh blackcurrant finish. Pure, fresh and elegant but with concentration. Very fine. 13.5% of press wine added.

Serena Sutcliffe MW: Merlot 53%, Cabernet Sauvignon 41%, Petit Verdot 6%. 45% of the crop. An attractive blueberry nose, with a touch of fenugreek. Lots of coffee and chocolate on the palate. Soft and with finesse – great care obviously taken with extraction.
