I’m sure many of you will be interested in the Bordeaux 2019 En Primeur offer.
He gives lots more detail in the article above, but here’s an extract:
Our offering of 2019 en primeur
Assuming that the results of my upcoming tastings are successful and we have a critical mass of 2019s that we would like to offer to members, we are intending to proceed in the following way. The idea will be to offer the top, most expensive, wines by way of individual emails as and when the prices are released. This is likely to apply to around 20-30 wines. For each wine members will then have a short window in which to decide whether they would like to purchase. Once that window closes, the particular wine will be allocated.
For the more modestly priced wines we will, as in the past, do an en primeur offer (probably printed) once all the prices have been announced – realistically this is likely to be early to mid-July.
So that members know which wines will be offered (both the top 20-30 châteaux and the main, printed offer) we will put up a list on the website.
