It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, months before official release.
The advantages of 'En Primeur' buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn't enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines - providing you are quick!
Pay in two easy instalments
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £24 a case at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Prices are for 12 bottles unless otherwise specified.
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.
