Bordeaux Futures represent a unique opportunity for wine aficionados and novices alike to invest in some of the world's most sought-after wines while they are still aging in their barrels. This tradition, dating back to centuries, allows you to secure bottles of your favorite wines at the best price, even before they're bottled and released to the general market.
The Bordeaux En Primeur Experience
Every spring, the grand châteaux of Bordeaux welcome the world to taste the wines from the prior fall’s harvest, and each year, Wine Director's from Wally's attend. While these wines are still works in progress, resting in fine French oak barrels, critics, connoisseurs, retailers, and restaurateurs get a chance to taste the nascent vintage. Experienced tasters assess these young wines, looking for depth, balance, and all the components that make a complete wine. The process requires the ability to prognosticate the likely arc these wines, with all the right attributes, will take.
Bordeaux Futures at Wally's
At Wally's Wine & Spirits, we offer Bordeaux Futures from outstanding vintages. For instance, the 2022 vintage has been described as extraordinary, uniting rich, full-bodied fruit flavors with the characteristic minerality of Bordeaux. The wines from this year are smooth, sophisticated, and packed full of flavor, showcasing the unique identity of each vineyard. The limited supply of these wines makes them hot commodities, so securing them as futures ensures that you won't miss out on this exceptional vintage.
Why Buy Bordeaux Futures at Wally's
Investing in Bordeaux Futures at Wally's allows you to buy at the best price. The first tranche of futures is invariably the least expensive, and in high-demand years, subsequent tranches are released at increasingly higher prices. Therefore, purchasing the first release brings great savings. Moreover, you get the satisfaction of knowing that you have already secured the wines you are so anxious to taste.
How to Buy Bordeaux Futures at Wally's
Ordering futures with Wally's is as straightforward as placing any online order. As the year's futures campaign progresses, new wines will be released almost daily.
