What is En Primeur?
Bordeaux En Primeur is the world's longest running commodities market. Also known as 'wine futures', En Primeur is when the Bordelais sell their wines while still in barrel. Merchants and buyers from all over the world flock to Bordeaux for a week to taste the wines en primeur and judge which wines they want to buy and for how much.
How does it work?
We release the wines we've secured at the prices we've negotiated as they become available.
Langton's clients secure their allocations online or through their personal Wine Brokers.
When the wines are ready (approx 2020), they will be shipped and you take delivery without any additional costs
