In an Australian first, eleven renowned Châteaux will travel from Bordeaux to Australia to debut their wines ‘En Primeur’ in exclusive tasting events in Sydney this month.


Langton’s, Australia’s leading Bordeaux specialist, is giving wine lovers in Sydney and Melbourne a rare chance to sample and secure the world’s most sought-after wines.


En Primeur – also known as wine futures – is the single most important annual event in the wine calendar, when the Bordelais offer barrel samples before their bottling, and eventual sale, usually two years later. Such access is usually reserved strictly for wine professionals, who must travel to Bordeaux for the privilege.

These unique events offer Australian customers a once-in- a-lifetime opportunity to taste (and buy) wines of the future.


For those looking to invest or cellar and drink, these events will give ticket holders unrivalled access to eleven of Bordeaux’s best Châteaux, including Pontet Canet, Lascombes, and Grand Puy Ducasse.


Representatives from each of the Chateaux will be on hand to present 12 barrel samples from the 2018 vintage alongside their 2015 equivalents for comparison.


In both Sydney (Doltone House) and Melbourne (Sumac and Maia), the roving tastings will run for two hours, followed by a three-course dinner for those attending both.

The dinners will be paired with a selection of back vintage Bordeaux presented by representatives from the featured Châteaux.


Tickets available:


● Roving Tastings – $70: Includes barrel samples of 12 2018 wines, their 2015 comparisons,
grazing table and canapés
● The Ultimate Connoisseurs Tasting & Dinner Experience – $300: Includes barrel samples
of 12 2018 wines, their 2015 comparisons, grazing table and canapés, followed by a three-course dinner hosted by representatives from the participating Châteaux
