Each year in the April after the harvest, the Chateaux of Bordeaux open their cellars to members of the international wine trade to taste the new wines from the barrel and assess the vintage. Over the next two months, each Chateau releases an En Primeur Offer, a special price which allow the purchaser to buy the wines they desire but before they are bottled.
How it works!
En Primeur is straightforward and fun! The wines offered are still in barrel. Buying En Primeur will allow you to obtain the wines you would like at a keen price.
· The prices quoted are for 12 bottles of the particular Chateau’s wine excluding Excise Duty and VAT. Payment for the wine is required when the order is confirmed.
· Excise Duty (currently £2.08 per bottle), Shipping Cost (£18.25 per case) and VAT on the original purchase of wine, Excise Duty and Shipping Costs will be payable at the time of shipping. All prices quoted are correct at time of offer but may vary.
· Wines will be bottled and shipped from Bordeaux to M&B HQ in March 2019.
· En Primeur may seem daunting and remote but it really isn’t. Give Mark a call and he’ll talk you through it!
