Futures

FuturesWine Futures, also known as En Primeur, is basically purchasing wine after it is barreled, but before it is bottled. “Barrel” tasting is made available to wine journalists, wholesale buyers and direct importers during the spring season following the vintage year. Wine merchants then sell the wine to their customers while it is usually bottled and shipped two years later.

The initial release price of any wine future is usually the lowest price the wine will be sold. Good vintages provide the greatest return on investment for the investor.

Wine Futures are a specialty of Bordeaux. However, wine futures are becoming increasingly popular in other regions as well. Including; Burgundy, the Rhône Valley, California and Italy. Port is also becoming a popular futures commodity. In many cases, these wines are produced in extremely limited quantities and, sometimes, purchasing the wine as a future may be the only way to purchase this wine. Many of these wines also disappear into the private cellars of investors and collectors and are rarely, if ever, seen on the market again.


The Time To Order 2015 Futures is NOW
It started last year in July, "the growing season was working out beautifully...would be a great vintage if it finishes as well as it started...etc"  The Bordeaux hype machine is amazing, from the trade to the consumers, it is tremendous.  Now that the wines are made and resting in barrel we can see some review notes and also learn about the vintage as a whole.  I found Neil Martin of The Wine Advocate's article very informative and I like his style.  I'm sure Robert Parker is feeling comfortable with the decision to turn Bordeaux over to Neil.  While the article is long and again very informative for 's purposes two lines struck me as the most important…

"Generally, 2015 is an excellent vintage." 

"As mentioned in this introduction, quality is not geographically uniform. The best wines tend to be in the southern Médoc, specifically Margaux and Pessac-Léognan, across the Right Bank in Saint Emilion and Pomerol, then into several satellite appellations." 

Wines must be purchased in increments of 6 bottles.  We expect the wines to arrive in the Spring of 2018.

Quantities are limited to our allocation, we will let you know immediately if we cannot fulfill your wishes.
