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.

40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 14% Petit Verdot.  Very fruity, ‘breath of fresh air’ wine, right from the start.  Then, on the palate, a concentrated heart to it.  Balance and very good red fruit, plus true Margaux elegance, the result of great care and low temperature extraction. 

Nicholas Jackson, MW 
Lovely spicy nose.  The combined impact of the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot really felt on the nose.  Lots of mid palate fruit and yet still feels only medium bodied.  Lovely texture with fine grained tannin.  Coffee and spice on the finish.  Really characterful - may not be the most traditional Margaux but so much personality!   

Jamie Ritchie
Red and black cherries and currants with a touch of savoury plums. Fresh and pure with noticeable acidity and tannin, but there is enough fruit to support it. Elegant, refined, Margaux with good concentration.
