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].

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… ...

97 points Wine Spectator: This drips with steeped raspberry, plum and boysenberry fruit, giving this a decidedly fruit-driven personality. Shows ample spine, with a deeply buried bolt of graphite and hints of Turkish coffee and ganache skittering through. Offers a long echo of smoldering tobacco. A… ...

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… ...
