An Investor’s Vintage: OenoFuture Launches Bordeaux En Primeur 2019 Campaign


Bordeaux’s top chateaux typically launch their En Primeur or “Futures” campaign during April, but this year’s delayed campaign offers exceptional opportunities for investors to enter the market at excellent prices. These wines are sold whilst still in the barrel, enabling an early entry into the market for highly sought-after bottles which enjoy solid global demand on the secondary market.

The delayed Bordeaux En Primeur 2019 campaign couldn’t come at a better time for investors. The unique combination of a excellent vintage and hefty discounts makes this a rare opportunity to secure cult bottles at very attractive pricing. Our Oeno fine wine team has put together a detailed Bordeaux En Primeur 2019 Special Report with insider analysis and our top picks of which bottles investors should be buying this year.

Working closely with our negociant partners, OenoFuture has secured some exceptional wines from top estates including Chateau Cheval Blanc and Chateau Palmer as well as up-and-coming stars like Chateau Beychevelle which sold out within hours during last year’s Bordeaux En Primeur campaign. Below you will find details of Oeno’s first wave of releases which are available in extremely limited quantities.” Justin Knock MW, OenoFuture Chief Wine Analyst

Cheval Blanc / £2250 per case

Consistently one of the greatest Bordeaux chateaux and surely one of the most exciting, delivering utmost excellence in difficult years and supreme quality in great vintages. 2019 will surely match the extraordinary quality of legendary vintages such as 1947, 1959, 1982, 1989, 1998, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2018.

Chateau Palmer / £999 per case

One of the jewels of Bordeaux, often as great as a first growth for a fraction of the price. Palmer is also one of the most consistent wines of the region with an ageability that is second to none. 2019 should emulate previous great vintages like 1983, 1989, 2000 or 2005.

Alter Ego / £270 per case

This is the second label, not a second wine (there used to be a second wine called la Reserve du General) which has been produced at Chateau Palmer since 1998. Alter Ego has grown from strength to strength since its creation, following a similar pattern as Les Forts de Latour of Chateau Latour. A very popular bottling offering value for money from a world-class estate.

Chateau Beychevelle / £329 per case

One of the most sought-after wines on the current Bordeaux market, the quality of Chateau Beychevelle has gone up drastically and steadily over the last two decades. It made quite a bit of noise during last year’s En Primeur campaign when the chateau’s entire production sold out within a few hours. Demand is sky high again this year.
