En Primeur Bordeaux 2023

“Recent vintages have been a lottery, a roulette wheel of extremes and unexpected events. However, 2023 is more a test of climatic realities.”

The Vintage in Bordeaux 2023 - Report By Harriet Tindal MW

We talk about the maritime influence that affects the vineyards of Bordeaux. 2023 saw humidity and the associated repercussions plague many winemakers right from the get go. Opinions from the various communes are mixed, but the relief driven by an absence of persistent heat and drought are obvious and reflected in the achieved yields of Châteaux throughout the region……

There are some spectacular wines in 2023. This could be the vintage to go off piste and discover new Châteaux.

How it Works

1. Placing an order

Contact your sales rep or Harriet Tindal MW by emailing : htindal@tindalwine.com. We can answer any questions that you may have and offer advice on which wines to buy.

2. Order Confirmation

It usually takes a few days to confirm orders and reserve wine. After which, we will raise an invoice for the COST OF THE WINE ONLY. This is to be paid immediately in order to secure the order. Vat and Duty are only due after the wine is shipped and the order is dispatched from our warehouse.

3. Order Dispatch

When we receive the wine into our warehouse, we send out an invoice for DUTY AND VAT. This must be paid before the order is dispatched. Current rates of Duty are €38.24 / dozen standard bottles and VAT is at 23%.
Shipping typically takes place:
Barolo – approximately 6 months after placing the order
Burgundy – approximately 6-9 months after placing the order
Bordeaux – approximately 2 years after placing the order.

All wines are offered UNDER BOND excluding duty and VAT 

(12bt case duty = €38.24, 6bt case duty = € 19.12) 


Payment in full due on invoice. 

A number of these wines are in very short supply as they are much sought after and suppliers have limited allocations. 

All orders are subject to final confirmation and stocks remaining unsold.
