En Primeur

En-Premeire-2016

It is always risky to announce a second great vintage in a row without appearing unduly optimistic. However, 2016 has proven itself to be unquestionably remarkable in Bordeaux, combining quality, quantity, and a very classic style. Hence we are excited to be offering a select range of En Primeur Bordeaux 2016 wines as more wines become available we'll add them to this page. For further reading on the benefits of En Primeur and click on the retrospective links.

If you have personal product requests please email or call us. As always, we remain at your disposal to answer any questions you may have regarding the wines or the En Primeur ordering process.

We expect the 2016 En Primeur Bordeaux campaign wines to be ready for shipping from August 2019.
