Each year, about this time, the Bordelais begin releasing the prices for the latest or current vintage, thus offering the wine for sale as “futures.” This is usually the optimum time to buy the wine at its lowest price – with some caveats of course.
First, the wine won’t be released or delivered for another 18-24 months, so your money is tied up while awaiting your product. OTOH, you’re probably not going to drink it right away anyway, so where’s the harm.
Also, if the wine critics don’t score the wine well, there is a chance the original futures price may actually be higher than when the wine is released. So, doing your homework about the specific appellations within Bordeaux is an absolute necessity – that is, if you want to make successful purchases. OTOH, you can usually get expert advice from your trusted wine store.
So, join us as we sit down with the winex.com guys, Kyle Meyer and Tristen Beamon to talk about some of past vintages, along with what we can expect from the 2015 wines from Bordeaux.
