2018 Bordeaux En Primeur

St Emilion Tower

En Primeur is basically wine futures - you pay upfront for wine that will be delivered a couple of years later. What's in it for you, you ask? Well, it allows you to get your hands on rare and highly sought-after wines at very advantageous prices (sometimes 30% cheaper!), with guaranteed provenance, no extra taxes and with peace of mind that the wines were well cellared in their Châteaux of origin before being cold shipped to Australia.

As we had many questions regarding this topic in the past few weeks, we're opening up once again registration for our separate En Primeur Newsletter / Offers - you can find the link below. We're also joining links to our previously sent offers so you don't miss out on anything!


Yes, yes. Every other vintage in Bordeaux is hailed as the vintage of the century and every time they tell you it's really the one... Well, we don't condone that sort of thing, but we can tell you 2018 is as good as it gets thanks to the dry, cool back season. Expect dark, brooding wines, concentrated and extracted, richly textured and dense, but balanced by excellent acidity - all qualities that promise a very long bottle life!

In terms of appellations to look out for, the cooler parts of the Left Bank saw some spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon (think Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac and Saint-Julien), but the Right Bank is where the action is, especially on the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion and the gravely clays of Pomerol.
