Representing the crème de la crème of our mixes, this is a selection of the wines that made a real impression on the fine wine team during their barrel tastings in the region. Château Malescot-St-Exupéry is a Margaux property on fine form in recent years and the 2018 is no different. It’s rich, blockbuster style is mirrored at the property that is the jewel in Bernard Magrez’s crown – Château Pape-Clément. Château Lafite’s stablemate Château d’Armailhac represents Pauillac and the classically-styled Château Langoa-Barton Saint-Julien. Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé Château Beau-Séjour-Bécot was one of the Right Bank’s shining stars in 2018. More introvert, but no less beautiful, Pomerol’s Château Hosanna completes the case.
It means reserving the latest vintage before it is 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 up to 18 months after being reserved, depending on the region.
The advantages of ‘En Primeur’ buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines – providing you are quick!
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).
After placing your order we will sent you a Reservation Certificate to your billing address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
