Bordeaux en-primeur 2018

Wine Cellar has access to almost all the wines of Bordeaux but we suggest the basket below of the top, most popular châteaux over our 17 years of en-primeur trading. The 2018 vintage will be sold in an en-primeur campaign from April through to June 2019. Wines are offered in 6 or 12-bottle cases, unless packed otherwise, for bottling and import mid-2021.

Wine Cellar will not carry stock of all 100 châteaux and urge customers to pre-order based on our estimates. We expect 2018 prices to be in line with the 2016 vintage. Sign up here to receive our communication or contact Roland@winecellar.co.za for guidance on your purchase.
