En Primeur Le Prieuré, St Emilion, will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Le Prieure’s ‘garden’ of vines is made up of 19 distinct plots, who use an intra-plot approach and practices to adapt to each unit of terroir that responds differently to the weather conditions of each vintage.
The majority of the vineyards are located on the asteriated limestone plateau, but as soon as you move away from the plateau, the land becomes more rugged with fine-textured soils from Castillon limestone and clay. These plots enjoy a southern exposure, which is particularly conducive to the ripening of the grapes in these naturally cooler terroirs.
These 19 plots sit at an altitude of between 56m and 90m. The various orientations and exposures form a patchwork of plots with distinctive characteristics that will enrich the blends in their own manner with each vintage.

Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
