An important part of our activity as Bordeaux négociant is having the opportunity to buy and sale the most prestigious wines two years before bottling.
“En-Primeur” (wine futures), is a method for purchasing wines early, when a vintage is still in barrel. Bordeaux is the biggest region selling its wine “en-primeur”.Wines are proposed in spring, 6 months after the harvest, and 12 to 18 months before they are ready for physical shipments.
It is purchasing and investment method in wines, usually of the finest quality.The wines are paid on order by our clients. Once bottles are ready for delivery, customs choose to have it shipped, or to store it in a warehouse in Bordeaux for further aging.
