En Primeur

What is En Primeur?

Buying wine En Primeur or ‘in the barrel’ is an excellent way of securing some of the best wines of the vintage by buying them in cases of 6 before they are bottled. From the top Crus to smaller, excellent value producers, the Waitrose Bordeaux En Primeur selection offers a superb range at all price points and is a great opportunity to invest in fine wines from this prestigious region.

The wine will mature in Bordeaux and once released Waitrose will deliver it to you, or if you’d like, arrange for professional cellarage at Vinotheque, our fine wine storage partner.

Buying En Primeur from Waitrose is a simple and secure way to add some interesting wines to your cellar whilst offering a unique taste of this fascinating vintage.

This year's offering is now over, but don't forget to return next year to discover our range.
