Bordeaux en-primeur 2017

 

Wine Cellar has selected a large basket of wines for the 2017 Bordeaux campaign. The 2017 vintage will be sold in an en-primeur campaign from April through to June 2018. Wines are offered in 6 or 12 bottle cases, unless packed otherwise, for bottling and import mid-2020.

Wine Cellar will have access to almost all the wines of Bordeaux. We will, however, not be buying across the board and in order to ensure your purchase, we ask for upfront requests. The popular châteaux amongst Wine Cellar customers over the last 2 decades will be offered through the Bordeaux en-primeur newsletter, sign up here, as well as being listed here. We can also suggest a basket of wines depending on your preferred style.
