Our 13th Campaign
2017 had the all the makings of an excellent, consumer driven En-Primeur campaign. Many Châteaux failed with less than a handful offering value. Search each wine by appellation and do read our end of campaign report which can by found in ‘A Tate of The Vinorium’
Our US Wine Collection
Our US collection expands with new arrivals from the talented Gavin Chanin, who has established a strong reputation for making some of the most beautiful, exciting and distinctive wines to come out of California in some time. It is hard to believe just how many awards and accolades he has received since his career begun in 2007.

Based near Seppeltsfield, where Australia's oldest wineries can be found, these are large-scaled, big-boned reds which nonetheless and despite their magnitude, possess an elegance and fine balance with a tremendous ageing potential. They are charismatic, individual and rare, produced as they are in utterly finite, not to say minute quantity.
Legendary Pinot Noir
A legendary name in New Zealand, their wines are invariably compared with top Burgundies and some of the best Pinot Noirs from around the world. 2017 saw even smaller production than usual however, and before the new vintage arrives, we have some extraordinary 2016s to savour. Explore our range of Felton Road and other stunning Pinot Noirs from New Zealand.
2017 Bordeaux En-Primeur: The wines worth buying
Château Rauzan Segla
Château Rauzan Segla is in huge demand and with the sensible price of £324.00 IB per case of six firmly stands as one of the ‘savvy’ buys of the campaign. Same score as Pichon Lalande too!
Château Léoville Barton
Antonio Galloni awards 93-96 and believes it to be “one of the few truly exceptional Left Bank wines of the vintage”. Neal Martin awards 93-95 equalling Châteaux Palmer, La Mission Haut Brion, Leoville Las Cases, Ducru Beaucaillou, both Pichon’s and one point of the First Growths, Mouton Rothschild, Haut Brion and Latour.
Château Montrose is released @ £590.00 IB per case of six, which is a little down on their 2016 offering. Perhaps their price should be taken in context against critic’s reviews with Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (Parker.com) awarding a huge 96-99 and describing it as “one of the greatest Montrose's I have tasted”.
Château Cos d’Estournel
For several critics, Château Cos d’Estournel represents one of the wines of the vintage with Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW awarding 97-100 points and declaring it “truly profound”. Despite high scores, the Château has sensibly released their 2017 (down 10% on 2016) which comes highly recommended @ £654.00 IB per case.
