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.

Wine currently held in Bordeaux. Estimated arrival in the US: fall 2020. Only available in 6 bottle original wooden cases.
 

Tasting Note

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 45%, Petit Verdot 4%, Cabernet Franc 1% (from press juice). 60% new oak. A berryish nose leads to a good fruit centre on the palate, with glossy tannins, in the Beychevelle manner. Silky smooth. 


Jamie Ritchie: Primary red and blackcurrants and cherries. Fresh, juicy and fruity, with a savoury, spicy, cherry finish combined with tobacco and cedar. Attractive, well made.
