Offering Bordeaux En Primeur

Vintages: 2021, 2022, & 2023


Bordeaux En Primeur, or "wine futures," provides collectors and investors with a unique opportunity to purchase wines while they are still aging in the barrel. This practice, steeped in tradition, brings several advantages to those who appreciate fine wine and strategic investment.

What is Bordeaux En Primeur?

Bordeaux En Primeur is an annual event where châteaux present their latest vintage to wine merchants, critics, and buyers. This early release allows wines to be purchased before they are bottled and released to the market, typically 2-3 years later. Renowned critics evaluate and score these wines, offering valuable insights into their potential quality and aging prospects.

Benefits of Buying Bordeaux En Primeur

Access to Prestigious Wines: Buying En Primeur ensures access to some of the most sought-after wines from top Bordeaux estates. These wines often sell out quickly upon release, making early purchase a strategic move for collectors.

Price Advantage: Purchasing En Primeur can offer significant savings compared to the price of the wine once it is bottled and released to the market. This price advantage is particularly notable for highly rated and limited production wines.

Investment Potential: Wines purchased En Primeur often appreciate in value as they mature in the bottle, making them an attractive option for investors looking to enhance their wine portfolio.

Customization: Buyers have the opportunity to specify their desired formats (e.g., magnums or other large formats), which can be harder to obtain once the wine is bottled and distributed.

How It Works

Selection and Purchase: Discover our carefully curated Bordeaux En Primeur wines which have been selected based on initial tasting notes and reviews from respected critics.

Aging and Bottling: The wines continue to mature in the châteaux’s cellars under meticulous supervision to ensure they reach their full potential.

Delivery: Once bottled, typically 2-3 years after the initial release offering, the wines are imported directly from Bordeaux to our facilities in Los Angeles, California and prepared for delivery to you.

En Primeur Terms and Conditions:

    • Final Sale: Due to their nature as investment pieces and limited availability, all sales of these wines are final upon order placement.

    • Estimated Delivery: Delivery dates are estimates and depend on each producer's release schedule and the time required for importing by sea. While we strive to meet these timeframes, exact delivery times are not guaranteed.

    • Shipping: When your wines are ready for delivery, we will reach out to finalize shipping or pickup details. Wines will be securely stored in our facility until arrangements are confirmed. Storage is free from six months of receipt, and then thereafter will be charged per storage rate schedule.

By participating in Bordeaux En Primeur with Angry Wine Merchant, you gain access to exceptional wines at their earliest and most advantageous stage, securing your place among connoisseurs who value quality, exclusivity, and investment potential. Explore our collection today and invest in the future of fine wine.
