Bordeaux

 


 

We have been getting several requests for 2018 and 2019 Bordeaux, particularly at the top end. There are only bits and pieces left available ex Bordeaux. Our search, though, found some excellent older vintages of first growths and other sought-after chateaux in vintages from 1999 to 2016. 

All have impeccable provenance. All are currently in Bordeaux and available only on order. All come in in original six bottle wood cases unless otherwise indicated. We think this is an excellent compromise between capital outlay and future appreciation. There are only one case of 2005 Mouton and one three-bottle case of 2009 Chateau Latour. There are between two and six cases available of the others.

Should you want less than a case, we will try to assemble orders for smaller quantities at a 10% surcharge over the bottle price listed. We cannot guarantee availability.

Our prices are significantly lower than those of the average current in-country offerings, with the advantage of assured provenance. BUT we must place our order in a week to ensure delivery before any possible resumption of tariff.

 

Terms

Offered subject to prior sale. Orders will be confirmed on receipt of a 25% deposit.The balance is due on arrival, in late June or early July.

 

The 2020 En Primeur Campaign

I have been in contact with our Bordeaux negociant over the past few weeks, gleaning as much information as possible. The vintage appears to be excellent, although the success varies more by chateau than in 2018 or 2019.  Prices will likely be higher than the 2019’s due to higher euro price and exchange rate differences. The level remains to be seen. I anticipate that offers will begin for the lower-end Chateau toward the end of next week. We will offer frequent emails as prices are announced.
