Please click here for full details of our Burgundy 2011 En Primeur Promotion.

En Primeur is a French wine trade term for wine which is sold as a “future”, i.e. prior to being bottled and for delivery at a future date.

For many wines and certainly the most sought-after, the en primeur price is usually the best price you will pay and buying when the wines are first offered on the market ensures not only that you secure the wines you want but also enables you to buy in different formats: halves, magnums and so on. By purchasing a wine en primeur you can be assured of your wine’s provenance, direct from the château, domaine or winery, where it will have been stored in perfect conditions.

When buying en primeur, you pay the opening price (an “In Bond” price which includes the cost of shipping to London) as soon as the wine is offered on the market. Once the wine is shipped to London, you can choose to store it at London City Bond Vinothèque under bond or you can have it shipped to Hong Kong.

In conjunction with our partners at Private Cellar we extensively taste wines from the new vintage in Bordeaux and Burgundy every year and have up to the minute information on the latest quality reports, wines and prices. We also offer wines en primeur from other regions, including the Rhône Valley and Italy. En primeur wines are usually offered one or two years after the harvest, usually as follows:

Bordeaux The spring following the harvest
Burgundy Approximately 15 months after the harvest by most growers
Rhône 12-18 months after their harvest
Italy Italy varies from region to region with the top Piemontese wines and Brunello di Montalcino being released up to four years after harvest and the top wines of Tuscany approximately 2½ years after harvest

The wines will be delivered up to 36 months after being offered. The length of time varies according to the region.
