Frost may have made this one of Bordeaux's smallest harvests in many years, but there is plenty of exceedingly appealing red, white and sweet wines if you know where to look. Secure your share of the best now.
“Despite terrible frosts, most of the top wine estates of Bordeaux made some outstanding quality wines that will deliver beautiful drinking for years ahead.”
- James Suckling
“2017 is potentially a very good vintage.”

It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK in late 2019.
How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £2.23 a bottle at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £10.80 per case per year).

Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.
