En Primeur News : Thursday, 23rd June 2016
NB - this page was correct as of 23rd June. Some prices/availability may have changed.
There has been a second tranche of Larcis Ducasse and we can offer a few cases at £525.
With the 2015 en primeur campaign now coming to an end, it’s time for a round-up of the best deals of the vintage. These are wines that give you, the customer, the opportunity to buy an excellent wine at the lowest possible price. Ultimately, that is what en primeur should be all about.
