What does ‘En Primeur mean’? It simply means newly produced wine made available before its normal time for sale.
How en primeur works:
Bordeaux 2020 en primeur wines will be offered for sale in May/June 2021, with delivery in 2023 once the wines have been bottled and shipped. The prices offered are the first prices offered by the chateaux producers and normally represent the best price at which to buy the wine.
Choose from the wines listed in the report and place your orders by email to email@example.com.
IN BOND / UNDER BOND
When you buy wines In Bond (also referred to as ‘Under Bond’) they can either be transferred, under bond, to an account in a Bonded warehouse or delivered duty paid. We will enquire by email whether you wish the wine to remain under bond or be delivered duty paid.
For In Bond deliveries, we will ask you to provide the details of the bonded warehouse address and the account you would like it held under. Excise and VAT taxes are not payable for wines transferred under bond. A charge for the transfer will be made at the time of delivery, and varies from Bond to Bond. We will let you know what that charge is in advance, when you confirm the address, and issue an invoice for the transfer charge.
For Duty Paid Deliveries. We will ask for the delivery address by email. All Under Bond prices exclude HM Excise, Customs and VAT. Current Excise rates are £13.39 per 4.5 litre case (equivalent to 6x75cl), Customs are Zero and VAT is currently charged at 20%. These taxes are liable to change, and will be charged at the prevailing rate when the goods are removed from Bond. At that time, a new VAT invoice will be issued, including a charge for onward delivery. The balance between what has already been charge Under Bond and the new VAT invoice will be payable.
N.B. Our website currently does not automatically charge for these additional costs and may even suggest that the wines qualify for Free National Delviery. We apologise that is not the case with Under Bond and En Primeur purchases.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further enquiry about buying wine under bond..
As with most of life, there are simple answers, and then there are longer, more complicated versions. Let’s go with the simple ones.
White wine – ideally, most white wines should be served at about 10C. Sweeter wines and bubbly can stand being served colder. But for practical purposes, what comes out of the fridge is a bit too cold. So let it warm up a bit first.
Red wine – the classic advice is ‘serve at room temperature.’ What they don’t tell you is that this advice was penned before central heating. So, room temperature actually translates to 15-18C. Light reds can often benefit from a bit of chilling.
