En Primeur is the process which allows you to buy fine wines from the greatest vineyards, before they are shipped at discounted rates. You pay the cost of the wine now and then the duty, delivery and VAT when the wine has landed in the UK. It is invariably the cheapest way to stock your cellar and traditionally applies to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhône and Port.
At FromVineyardsDirect we concentrate on the affordable, ‘drinking’ end of the market and sell a deliberately limited selection of the wines that we feel offer the absolute best value for money.
2016 was a vintage that got better and better…and better and ended with a fabulous late harvest with ripe fruit in perfect condition throughout all Bordeaux. These kinds of years are when there is great value to be found right accross the board.
This is the best Rhône vintage in over 10 years in our opinion and nearly all the wine critics too, without doubt, this it the year to buy Rhône.
