Pre-arrival wines and wine futures

As a long-standing leader in the wine retail business, we've developed an industry leading pre-arrival program featuring many of the wine world's greatest names, as well as uncounted new discoveries, many appearing in the United States for the first time through our channels. We secure these wines directly through select agents in Europe with whom we’ve had long-term relationships. Our orders are confirmed and the wines are paid for. We are generally able to land the wines within four to six months after securing them, at which time we will contact you to arrange for pick-up or delivery. The advantage to buying on pre-arrival is to secure a wine whose availability is scarce and/or to lock in a generally lower pre-arrival price. By going directly to the source, we are able to obtain larger quantities of highly allocated wines than would otherwise be possible. For more detailed information and complete terms and conditions of our pre-arrivals program, please click [HERE].

96 points James Suckling: Very fresh and vivid 2009 with berries, dark spice and hints of walnuts. Full-bodied, reserved and so held back and muscular, but you don t feel the tannins and the strength. A great wine. Give it two or three years. Try in 2020. (8/2/18) ...

95+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2017 Brücke Spätlese is an absolute classic in the making and one of the best version of this Prädikat level from the vineyard since the stellar pair from the 2001 and 2002 vintages. The nose wafts from the glass in a complex constellation of apple,… ...

98 points Tim Atkin, MW (Jan 2018). 95-98 points Fine Wine Review: But even more of a star in this vintage is the Clos Saint-Denis. The wine is spicy (nutmeg) and pure with red currant and other red fruits. It is perfectly balanced and so light on the palate. About 90% whole clusters here, and about… ...

94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): Opaque ruby. A deeply perfumed, complex bouquet evokes ripe, spice-tinged cherry and boysenberry, along with complicating suggestions of potpourri, incense and smoky bacon. Sappy and expressive in character, offering palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur and… ...

92 points and 'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): (from a 1.10 ha holding). Like the Pommard villages there is a trace of reduction that I also doubt will persist as the notably refined medium-bodied flavors are super-fresh in the mouth while displaying excellent length on the… ...

96-99 points Jasper Morris, MW: 15 barrels from 6.5 ha is a miserable return, especially sad given the extraordinary quality of the wine. It has a huge rich dense inky colour. The massive nose is not clumsy but denotes an intensity which is scarcely ready to speak. With time we start to see an… ...
