Re: de Negoce offer

" Known in the trade as En Primeur or futures, buying wine out of the barrel allows you to access pricing not seen since the 1970's." This is different than above..I want blind futures, I do not want CH Blends. I am willing to take the risk on blind bottles of the same wine I can get at the vineyard...

Did you try it and not like it? If so, what did you not like about it?
No, but after the past couple offerings think it was one of the weaker.

Who knows maybe it will be the best

Re: de Negoce offer

For all of you who are hoping that these wines are 'identical' to a specific producer - it sounds like CH is purchasing wine and bottling it himself, not relabeling something that's already out there. And therefore it could be 'overages' of a specific blend - OR it could be extra wine that didn't m...

Stewart is a good buy at $30, more new style Cabernet, which we are fans of.
