BORDEAUX

FUTURES

2016

WHAT ARE

FUTURES?

Let’s cut to the chase:

2016 is unequivocally a great

vintage in Bordeaux.

Each spring, critics and buyers from around the world sample

the wines of Bordeaux’s newest vintage while they’re in barrel.

When the reviews are in, customers buy the wines in advance;

two years later they’re bottled and delivered. Why buywines this way?

They may cost more once they hit stores (or may never be in stores

at all) and, while serious collectors buy them as an investment, it’s a

great way for anyone to try top wines at potentially lower prices.
