After the success of our 2021 En Primeur offer, it has been my pleasure to put together Majestic’s En Primeur selection of 2022 Bordeaux wines.
(or 'wine futures'), is a way of buying premium wine whilst it’s still in barrel. By investing in these brand new vintages, you get early access—and incredible value—before bottles hit the open market. It’s a fantastic way of getting the first pick of fine wines to add to your collection – all kept and nurtured in the best possible conditions until they’re released years later.
The 2022 vintage has been hailed for its quality, so I couldn’t wait to get to Bordeaux and see for myself. Alongside 6,000 eager wine professionals from all around the world, we tasted countless wines – many of them several times across the course of the week. Having participated in En Primeur tastings for many years, I’m searching for wines with the perfect balance of concentration and structure that will indicate its potential.
Our offer for 2022 is a curated list of what I found to be the best – and it’s a selection for wine drinkers, not just investors. Featuring some of the most renowned and illustrious estates, the selection also includes many stunning wines at more affordable prices which are my star picks. What’s more, this means that although all have ageing potential, many of them will be drinking deliciously earlier than usual.
Though it’s steeped in history and tradition, En Primeur is far from old fashioned. Between prestigious first growth châteaux and smaller, newer estates, there is creativity abound in the vineyards, in winemaking, and winery design – “ça bouge à bordeaux!”
Enjoy the collection.
We'll be adding new wines as they're released by the châteaux – make sure you express your interest to be kept up to date with the latest releases.
