En-Primeur

Bordeaux En-Primeur

En primeur or “wine futures”, allows you to purchase wines early while the wine from a specific vintage is still in the barrel. This offers you the opportunity to invest before the wine is bottled.

Payment is made at an early stage, 18 months to 2 years prior to the official release of a vintage. Buying wines en primeur may be considerably cheaper during the en primeur period than they will be once bottled and released to the market. However, that is not guaranteed and some wines may lose value over time.

En primeur offers access to rare wines that may be harder to secure after release.

The Changing Face of Bordeaux from 1960-2022
Like all wine regions Bordeaux has been evolving over the last 50 years

From the elegant Clarets of the 60’s and 70’s to the Big & Bold of the 80’s & 90’s and the sun drenched 2010’s the wines they are a changing.

Explore the evolution of Bordeaux over the decades, shifts in style and watch a couple of fascinating visualisation of all this and more by Pierre Le Hong as he explores the history of Pichon-Lalande over the last century and the 2021 vintage at Montrose.

There are many books about this most captivating of wine regions, but nothing comes close to Inside Burgundy for its comprehensive depth and detailed information on the vineyards, the wine, the vintages and the growers of this storied region. Since its first publication in 2010, this work has become indispensable for Burgundy lovers and the undisputed benchmark reference on the region. This second edition spans 800 pages, with expanded coverage of over 1,200 vineyards, 300 wine villages a
Containing over 700 pages of in-depth writing, maps that are almost alarming in their detail, and incorporating newly commissioned and (literally) ground-breaking research into Bordeaux’s terroir, Janes Anson’s work is, by a margin, the most up-to-date and scientifically informed book in the Bordeaux canon. Indeed, with the bar set so high, this is a book unlikely to be surpassed in our lifetime (unless there is a second edition)! Anson has lived and worked in Bordeaux for almost 20 years

The 2021 Vintage in Bordeaux

2021 was a challenging vintage that tested Bordeaux’s best. This has created a complicated picture in which drawing broad conclusions on the vintage are difficult. That said, one assertion that can be made is that many winemakers rose to the challenge and, through hard work, sheer determination and utilising the latest techniques and technology, lovely wines were made on both sides of the Gironde.

2021 sees a return to the elegant and refined claret style many associate with the region prior to the solar vintages experienced over the last two decades. Alcohols levels are down a good 1% or more, and with higher natural acidity levels, the wines will display a greater degree of drinkability than some of the more blockbuster years.


“Aside from widespread frost, constant rain, humidity, rot, muddy terrain, June’s biblical deluges, leafhopper infestations, a cool and overcast summer, delayed vine growth, spun-out véraison, stubbornly low phenolic ripeness, shortages of pickers and an incorrect weather forecast in the eve of harvest…the 2021 season was a piece of cake.”  Neal Martin – Vinous

William Kelley of the Wine Advocate found that despite the tricky conditions, “The region’s best producers… have taken all these challenges in their stride” and that 2021 has produced several genuinely great wines, as well as many good to excellent wines that will deliver immense pleasure”. Indeed, he found that such is the improvement in winemaking today that “were the 2021s transposed to the decade of the 1990s, they would be considered the product of a superb vintage.”

Georgie Hindle of Decanter found much to admire and 2021. “A year of intense aromatic complexity in both the reds and whites. Lower alcohol, freshness, balance and elegance in the best wines….there will be some beautiful bottles worth buying from 2021 – if you know where to look”.

While Antonio Galloni quoted “The 2021 Bordeaux have turned out to be such a surprise. Weather conditions were challenging, and yet the top properties turned out gorgeous, classically built wines that will absolutely thrill readers who appreciate freshness and energy. Restrained alcohols and mid-weight structures will remind readers of Bordeaux pre-2000s. The best wines offer a striking combination of old-school classicism with modern-day precision. Quality is inconsistent though, so choosing carefully is essential. Even so, there is much to like in the 2021s.”

Medium to full-bodied, seamless and elegant, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and beautifully refined tannins, it's the highlight of the von Neipperg portfolio this year.

Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's immensely refined and seamless, with a lively spine of acidity, ripe tannins and a long, penetrating, intensely saline finish.

Wafting from the glass with aromas of wild blueberries and raspberries mingled with rose petals, violets, exotic spices, vine smoke and blood orange, it's full-bodied, seamless and sensual, with a satiny attack that segues into a deep, layered mid-palate of breathtaking precision and intensity without weight.

Built around beautifully refined, powdery tannins and lively acids, it concludes with a long, mouthwateringly saline finish.

Château Bellevue-Mondotte 2021

"The 2021 Bellevue Mondotte is sensual, creamy and enveloping. There is a real sense of breath and textural volume here, a reflection of the clay in these soils. Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spice, new leather and menthol lend resonance to this super expressive Saint-Émillion from the Perse family. In 2021, Bellevue Mondotte is 100% Merlot, with no Cabernet Franc. Flowering was uneventful and yields were 26 hectoliters per hectare, all two hectares of it." Antonio Galloni, Vinous 93-95 Poin

Red/Purpleish fruit, gravel, spice, mocha and iron lend an air of distinction. The malos here are on the later side vis-a-vis the other properties in the range, so the wine comes across as a bit raw in this tasting. Even so there is good mid-palate density and plenty of character. All the 2021 needs is time to come together" Antonio Gall

There's a feeling of real energy and vibrancy I don't recall seeing here previously. The 2021 is one of the best vintages in recent memory. Sadly, yields are just 20 hectoliters per hectare.
